  • Not easy to find it open, but pays for itself with its huge circular design topped with a dome and columns that adorn all around its perimeter and surmounted by capitals decorated with Lily symbol of the Bourbons; the Church in neoclassical style reminiscent of the Roman Pantheon, it was built in the early 1800 's at the behest of Ferdinando I°; the Pontifical basilica consists of a portico or Colonnade which in this case also recalls the Colonnade of St. Peter's in Rome at the beginning there are statues of Lions as a symbol of defence; the imposing façade with a marble staircase and a Colonnade of Doric columns 6 and two beams that hold up the lintel on which there are on the left the statue of San Francesco di Paola, on the right a statue of Saint Ferdinand of Castile and Center the statue of religion . Internally a entrance circumscribed by columns, a lobby that left and right are the chapels dedicated to the souls in purgatory where a choir and paintings, including one by l. Giordano, the right chapel dedicated to the Blessed Sacrament; follows the circular central part where the apse there is the precious altar made with marble porphyry and lapis and agate and in retrospect enriched with marble columns that make other chapels that on every altar there are statues of various saints; San Matteo di Fatma, St. Luke's of C, etc.. and are also decorated by paintings by various artists of the Neapolitan school. I hope I have photographed over and described as much as possible, the Church and so big that it makes it difficult to fully describe all its beauty.

  • Beautiful Church, inspired to the shapes if the Panteon in Rome. Only downside: It's closed between 12:00 and 16:00
  • Beautiful basilica!
  • Really pretty! Urban myth says George Lucas got inspired by it to invent the buildings of the planet Naboo
  • Impressive circular cathedral. Great place for a party! Too bad they won't let me take pics inside.
  • Couldn't get in when. I visited and outside is Scruffy and run down people use the square as a dog park so a bit messy Such a shame looks like it could be spectacular
