  • Walking through the Centre of Naples we arrived at piazza del Gesù Nuovo and stumbled across this spire of the Immaculate really impressive. We appreciated the work of the Neapolitan Baroque and were intrigued by the aura of mystery and legend stating that the face of the statue of our Lady, located at the top of the obelisk, in some circumstances appear with a face depicting the death. However the Obelisk is very nice, is inspired by the party machines and is enhanced by numerous marble sculptures. Recommended visit.

  • This is a big tall pointy statue thing. It’s right outside the church. It’s fine. It’s apparently dedicated to surviving the plague. It’s nice enough. Only takes a couple seconds to look at.  more »
  • In piazza Gesù Nuovo, stands this impressive baroque spire of the eighteenth century. It is formed from the base holding a first level with a balustrade with images of Saints, a second tier rich in reliefs of Bottiglieri and Pagano and the cusp with on the statue of the Immaculate. Beautiful and spectacular!
