    The Church of Santa Caterina a Formiello, a church rich in frescoes, statues. A jewel of the sacred places of the city of Naples

    Undoubtedly the artistic wealth of Baroque church does not go unnoticed, beside Porta Capuana, thanks to the perfection of its Renaissance style (1505-1593) and the presence of numerous works in its 10 chapels, which tell different stories of patrician families Naples. I personally think the most beautiful work present in the Church the altar piece of the Flemish Wenzel Cobergher of 1590, preserved in the chapel Tomacelli, the fourth on the right. But the highlight is the great Renaissance cloister, accessible by a door on the left of the façade. Revenue and be blown away by this place, used in the nineteenth century as military wool mill, which makes a kind of industrial heritage site sacred. Also try the stylish lounge bar in the cloister. So don't miss it!

  • Very nice church on the inside. Worth a visit.
  • Enhanced within Baroque sculptures and wall coverings, Naveen a Formiello Santa (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 feature in Naples due to the layering and density of urban plant) thanks to the restoration of insulation 30 ' 900. Is a site by the extraordinary historical-architectural interest to the concentration of monumental fundamental emergencies in history, architecture and urbanism napoletana which Capuano Castle, dating from the twelfth century, before fortress, then the Palace and finally 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 mill Sava military factory in the 19th century, the two cloisters of the converted convent annexed to the said Church. The latter, the only example of industrial archeology intramurally is today concerned Neapolitan from various restoration and redevelopment that will be the engine for the development of the entire area.
