  • Così...la Church of Santa Caterina a formiello is located right next to the main gateway to the city of Naples, the 15th-century door capuana.la Church, born in the mid 500, has a facade, where reigns the piperno. the Interior is large, it is completely affrescato.la time, the dome, and tte chapels have an urgent need of restoration It's a shame seeing her in qto. has much to show!! worth a visit

  • For me the most interesting part is the outside of the Church. The typical combination of white and piperno in hips, decorative facades and beautiful dome. If you have time take a look from the two cloisters with entrance to the left of the Church.

  • Masterpiece among masterpieces. We were fortunate to be transfixed by the passionate words of two guides that exist within which we were informed on other churches to visit, and other initiatives in the city. Since you then take a look also to the architecture of the nearby former military wool mill and its chimneys.

  • 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.
