  • Towards the end of via Duomo, overlooking Piazza Nicola Amore, this early Christian Church, dating from the 4th-5th century, has been completely transformed in the 18th century by Giacomo Fanzago. Of the old church remains a part of the apse where Fanzago has put the entrance of the new Church-and a crucifix from the 12th, still Byzantine style. To make way for the route of via Duomo, then, was also deleted an aisle. The Church has now only nave and left sidebar. Despite all this, the Baroque is harmonious, for the beautiful central dome and the imposing altar. Behind this, on the left, a large shovel can be shifted, uncovering a hidden fresco of St. George and the Dragon. .

  • The basilica di San Giorgio Maggiore was a wonderful surprise ... we were passing by and saw this church open we walked ... right from the start you will be fascinated by outlining why, despite not having never heard of it before I noticed the strangeness of the entry; It has the feeling of being behind the altar ... and indeed my feeling wasn't so wrong because, thanks to a girl who was there and who has been kindly offered to tell us something about the history of the structure, we became aware of the fact that it is a church whose current entrance was once the apse early Christian era. Also the most beautiful discovery was the fresco of Aniello Falcone recently discovered perfectly preserved hidden behind the fabulous canvas St George Slaying the Dragon and also it depicting the same scene of Saint George. If you get the chance I would definitely recommend going there.

  • I walked past it several times, but I always found it closed or I was in a hurry and I could not give it a try. The other day, however, I found it open and so came to have a look at it. Thanks to some friends I had known of the existence of a mural that had been found behind a painting went under restoration. I spotted the keeper and I asked him if I could take a look and I must say it was very nice. If we pass, try stepping
