Pio Monte della Misericordia, Naples
(4.5/5 based on 320+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Pio Monte della Misericordia in Naples is a charity operating since 1600 and it is extraordinary to think that still operates under the large building that houses the institution, in the name of Christian principles following what are the 7 works of mercy. Seven noble Neapolitans in 1600 was the start up then talk to them today in a world where the start up awards the most innovative ideas ... the time you had to give water to the plant of generosity an ancient idea but always relevant. The plague epidemics of 1600 we had reaped many deaths so in the name of that principle, which is also old but modern at the same time, it was necessary to help people. 7nobili, in 1600, 7 Governors today take care of next respecting the 7 works of mercy and still 7 are usable in the magnificent works of mercy painting by Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio to the Pio Monte della Misericordia. Caravaggio was in Naples fleeing from Rome, but always bright and dark alleys of Naples. operating Marina De Martino

  • Located in the District of san Gregorio Armeno and Via dei Tribunali in 253, the seventeenth-century building of Pio Monte della Misericordia is composed of the church dedicated to our Lady of mercy and on the first floor the Pinacoteca, which costodisce works from the 15th to the 19th. In the church you can admire one of the three masterpieces that reside in the beautiful Naples of unsurpassed Michelangelo Merisi called Caravaggio. Not to be missed as a visit. The entrance ticket costs 5.00 7.00 adults and with reduction for large groups.

  • Worth the visit to know more about Caravagio the Painter. So few explanations in English.
  • One path of cultural and spiritual enrichment. The representation of the corporal works of mercy is valuable feedback with the apogee in Caravaggio. Beautiful upstairs the Museum with historical documents, the works Of Rubba, a rare self-portrait of Luca Giordano, vestments, chalices, monstrances and other. Also notable is the temporary exhibition. A rare plus, very significant, is that "give drink to the thirsty". At the entrance, visitors, bottles of mineral water. Discreet personnel, never oppressive but attentive.

  • Lovely Caravaggio "The 7 works of mercy". A truly spectacular picture not to be missed. Included in the entrance price there is also a visit to the gallery where you can admire paintings of minor authors!!!

  • Pio Monte della Misericordia began as a charity in ' 600 by some young Neapolitan nobles and continues his work. It is possible to visit the picture gallery and the Church. Here you can admire the beautiful paintings by Caravaggio representing the seven works of mercy. Peculiar is the table where sat the Heptagonal Government founders.
