We have just spent 4 days in Naples and this was the highlight, it is the most beautiful church I have seen . The paintings and wall art are superb, if you only visit one place in Naples let this be it

Absolutely stunning building, although it looks a little odd from the outside. The church is still in daily use, and it was great to sit for a while and watch locals take mass and confess.

Don't let the exterior fool you (we didn't even realize it was a church), the inside makes the Vatican blush. Simply overwhelming amazing. Over the top, even for a Catholic Church, but so pretty to see. Very peaceful too.

Very elaborately decorated. Maybe a bit gaudy for some tastes, but a lot of art crammed into every corner.

Beautiful church with an amazing contrast between facade and interior. A lovely peaceful place to escape the Naples crowds and heat for a while.

Unusual exterior aspect, wonderful interior. This is certainly, if not the most, on either of the 3 most beautiful churches of Naples
