Pio Monte della Misericordia, Naples

4.6
Famous for its collection of artwork, Pio Monte della Misericordia houses a museum, library, and art gallery. The 17th-century church features white marble halls and ornate decoration. The exposed altar showcases perhaps the church's most famed piece, Caravaggio's "Seven Acts of Mercy." The side chapels include more paintings from Caravaggio, along with the works by Santafede, Giordana, and D'Onofrio. Adjacent to the museum is a picture gallery filled with more art, refreshingly non-museum in presentation. Upstairs, a small exhibit draws parallels between the works in the chapel and those in the gallery. Our Naples vacation planner makes visiting Pio Monte della Misericordia and other Naples attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Before the painting by Caravaggio, one can only breathless. Too bad that room illumination does not allow to better appreciate the details. Highly recommended for all art lovers.

  • It has an important collection of paintings, crowned by the altarpiece of Caravaggio "opera della Misericordia". There is a magnificent and very curious birth in which the figures are taken from various paintings by Caravaggio

  • Worth the visit for the stunning, large oil paintings adorning many walls, aside from the centrepiece Caravaggio. I particularly liked the marble tile patterns on the floors.
  • Beautiful small church with attached gallery of period artwork and relics.
  • Amazing Caravaggio painting! And great painting at all ;)
  • fantastic caravaggio
  • Outstanding collection of art from many eras.
