Gesu Nuovo Church, Naples

(4.8/5 based on 1,700+ reviews on the web)
Discover the hidden wonders of Gesu Nuovo Church, a 16th-century church. Its somewhat plain exterior belies the interior's grand architecture and art collection. Look for Francesco Solimena's masterpiece painting, "The Expulsion of Heliodorus from the Temple." For some local history, visit the small chapel dedicated to St. Joseph Moscati (1880–1927), a biochemistry teacher at the University of Naples and head physician of the Hospital of the Incurables. You can admire his statue and study the depiction of his medical activities on a triptych sculptured urn. Put Gesu Nuovo Church at the forefront of your travel plans using our Naples trip itinerary maker.

  • The church like all churches is amazing. Each alter has is beauty, I liked the one in the photo. Wonderful facade. 
  • I was in College, which is near, so often the visiting. Every time fascinated me, besides the undisputed beauty, that sense of peace even if at any time of day visitors are many.

  • Lovely place and amazing arts! Thanks, new Jesus!
  • You could sit there for hours and try not to look at the same detail twice ... and succeed...easily!
  • This church contains fantastic architecture as well as both ceiling and wall paintings.
  • The opulent interior offers quiet from the busy street outside
  • One of the most beautiful church of the city. Rich of details but not tiring. Located in one of the most populated areas of Napoli. The outside reproduces (somehow) an hidden stave !
