  • It's situated right beside Castel Capuano and Porta Capuana, in the beginning (or the end) of via dei Tribunali. 
  • Renaissance monumental complex and of great artistic value. Rich in frescoes and chapels. Also attached is the cloister in 2012 started the restoration, a rare example of Renaissance Neapolitan and industrial archeology – which was in a State of total abandonment. The Foundation Made in Cloister has created and promoted the project and a very friendly attendant offered to explain the story and how did you start the restoration and also the adjoining former woolen mill first in Italy. Also within the space formerly refectory there is a bar for drinks. The food references the Campanian cuisine and tasting of typical products of the Neapolitan tradition. Exhibition Stadium and in the evening we organize evenings with music. It is well worth a visit. Free admission.

  • Beautiful 16th century Church in the historic center (near Porta Capuana), filled with beautiful frescoes and structures. Also worth visiting the small cloister recently restored. It also represents an interesting example of industrial archeology because the monastery and the cloisters were used during the 1800s to military wool mill. Worthy of note also the shrine of San Gennaro, to the right of the entrance door

  • Stupenda, uno splendore!
  • Very nice church on the inside. Worth a visit.
  • Embellished inside and wall sculptures, Baroque Santa a Formiello Naveen (the name derives from the presence in the place of "formal" bubble water) is one of the rare examples of Renaissance Naples church building visible in all its volumetric articulation from the outside (rare in Naples because of the layering and density of urban) thanks to the restoration of insulation 30 ' 900. Is located on a site by the extraordinary historical-architectural interest to the concentration of monumental fundamental emergencies in history, in architecture and urban planning such as Neapolitan Capuano Castle, dating from the twelfth century, before fortress, Royal Palace and then finally the Court (the Vicar) from 500 to 2000, the monumental Porta Capuana, the richest of the fifteenth-century aragonese fortification with two towers covered with piperno on either side of the marble triumphal arch dedicated to Alfonso of Aragon and the former wool factory Sava military factory, built in the 19th century in the two cloisters of the convent annexed to the said Church. The latter, the only example of industrial archeology Neapolitan intramurally is today affected by various restoration and redevelopment that will be the engine for the development of the entire area.
