A church , nothing more.
Sep 2020
The church is large with medium adorned walls. I was not impressed. Honestly if it wasn't for the monumental complex nearby (which is a breathtaking experience) , I probably wouldn't have entered this church. Final tip: go see the monumental complex of Santa Chiara (maybe passing through this church as well).

A great shame
Aug 2020 • Friends
On holiday in Naples, accompanied by some Italian friends, we had a nice tour. We also wanted to visit this church, but unfortunately we found it closed: a great shame.

Very nice church
Aug 2019
I visited Chiesa di Santa Chiara in August 2019 as part of a self-guided walking tour. It is located across the street from the Gesu Nuovo Church. It is an old church with a nice altar and a lot of nice artifacts. I recommend reading up on the historical center of Naples in advance and getting a good guide book and map. I was a bit rushed since I was on a cruise but I hope to return to Naples and spend a few days visiting everything carefully.

The most beautiful stained glass in Naples.
Aug 2019 • Couples
I wish I could post pictures but my phone got stolen later and I lost them all. But it is definitely worth the trip to see the stained glass in this church!

Multi aspects of activity, courtyard, church, roman or greek ruins, church, great place
Sep 2019
I was entranced with the garden/chiostro Maiolicato, it has a lot more and is well worth the entry fee.
The construction of the monumental complex began in 1310, almost the whole complex was rebuilt after being bombed in August '43.

Amazing oasis of calm and beauty
May 2019
Its the lovely cloisters that draws fame and is certainly an oasis of calm and a lovely spot to meet friends.. the cloister with its simple arches decorated with majolica tiles. To the side is a museum that houses ornaments and sculptures. There is the remains of a Roman bathouse. Interesting sections devoted to history ancient marbles and reliquaries

Especially the courtyard is worth a visit
May 2019 • Couples
Interesting church and small museum, but it is especially the courtyard with its majolica that deserves attention. Worth the detour

Beautiful simple Church
Jun 2019 • Solo
Although not as ornate as some of the other Churches, this Church is still quite beautiful with its simplicity. I was not expecting it to be so large on the inside.

Impressive Complex But Church Rather Dark
Jun 2019 • Couples
This significant church was commissioned by Robert the Wise for his second wife Queen Sancha who later became a nun at the church created for her which may or may not have been what he intended. It was completed in 1328 with some additional work in 1953 to restore it to its original form. It was impressive but rather dark although it did have interesting stained glass.This square was an interesting part of old Naples.
