A gem of art and architecture
Aug 2021
A gem of art and architecture in the center of Naples. I visited the Duomo with my family on August 2021 and I found it amazing. You will be impressed by the wall paintings and the glorious statues of this duomo.
It is unique because inside the Duomo is St. Januarious Chapel. Three times a year, St. Januarius renews his bond with Naples and his blood dissolves in front of thousands of citizens!!!
Don't miss it!

It’s a beauty!
Aug 2021 • Friends
Happened to walk by as Sunday night mass was being held. Was pretty special to be a part of. The church is beautiful and luckily it wasn’t packed when we were there. Worth a stop! We lit some candles watched some mass then left.

nice cathedral
Aug 2021
Beautiful cathedral, best and most interesting we saw in Naples. But nothing exceptional, so if you're going to be in other parts of Italy, you can skip this one.

The "sanguine" origin of Naples
Sep 2020
Let's face it:
the main reason why people go to this place is to see the relics (the blood of St. Gennaro) , protagonists of the famous miracle.
Unfortunately, when we went there, it was not possible to enter the room where the relics were kept and, perhaps because of this, we walked inside the church and enjoyed it very much (even the paid part). The structure is impressive and rich in history, so it is a must-see!

Beautiful facade
Sep 2020
Very beautiful cathedral, but the nicest for me was the facade. The interior is nice, as well. Always crowded.

A cathedral dedicated to San Gennaro, the patron saint of Naples
Nov 2019
The official name of this magnificent church is Cattedrale di Santa Maria Assunta but it is simply known as the Cattedrale di San Gennaro. Its main entrance is on the Via Duomo. The present cathedral was constructed in the XIII. century by the Anjou kings, but the facade is neo-gothic from the end of the XIX. century.

We did not have to pay an entrance fee. Once inside, we were stunned, how the interior - the nave, the aisles, the apse - is well lit by the numerous windows in the clerestory and the apse! The carved and gilded ceiling above the nave is from the XVII. century, it has five large paintings. As we were walking along the aisle, we enjoyed the ancient Roman columns and the subtle church music, but we could not locate its source. In front of the richly decorated high altar, we saw the right and left part of the organ above us, just under the first arches of the nave.

There are numerous side chapels from the aisles but we only had time to visit the two larger ones, the Cappella di San Gennaro and the Basilica of Santa Restituta.

The Cappella di San Gennaro is a big octagonally shaped chapel, under a large dome. It is very lavishly decorated and is dominated by a Baroque porphyry altar with black sculptures created by Francesco Solimena. The front of the altar table is a silver relief created by Giovan Domenico Vinaccia. In the left part of the high altar is the reliquary bust of Saint Gennaro in gold and silver! There are also two side altars and six huge paintings in total, right and left of the high altar.

This church is such a delight! You can see the rich history of the city, the beauty of the chapels, the most beautiful one has curtains which are actually carved. Free entrance, you cannot miss it.

Stunning and Free to Enter
Jul 2020
I wasn't staying that far from the Duomo, which is closed at certain times of the day, so check before you visit.
I went early on a Monday morning, and walked straight in, there are no entrance fees apart from the baptistry and a chapel. The crypt was closed due to the current situation. face coverings are required whilst inside.
The Duomo was beautiful, and you spend a lot of your time looking up, as that is where you find the finer details.
