Probably the most amazing marble sculptures of all time. There are in particular two amazing pieces that would justify stopping by... You cannot miss it if you go to Naples

No need to say this is one place you have to go and visit when in Naples, you'll the see the famous "Cristo Velato" by Giuseppe San Martino, but not only, "Modesty" by Antonio Corradini, and "disinganno" by Queirolo are also breathtaking sculptures

Jesus sculpture will blow your mind. But it is really small church with 5 beautiful sculptures and small basement with two 18century anatomical machines(really impressive ones) will take maximum 20minutes to see Wil cost with audio guide over 20 euros.

An overwhelmingly impressive piece of history. Just a a beautiful capella hosting one of the most amazing pieces of art you will ever see. Beyond the capella, the human robots are a sight to remember.

Of course it's main attraction is the veiled christ but for what they charge to enter there is little else to see. No photos are allowed and don't sit or touch anything or the many staff who are constantly watching you will rush over to...More

Il Cristo velato is the first thing you should see in Italy, not just in Naples. Possibily in silence, with few people around. (Don't get upset by the presence of illegal souvenir sellers in the area)!

Amazing sculptures. Very well managed with a good amount of information provided. Worth a wait to get in as they manage the numbers so it doesn’t get overcrowded inside.

Doesn’t have a lot inside - very small. The sculptures are still amazing so it’s up to you if you want to pay to see it. It’s about 5-7 euros depending on your age and if you’re a student. Also, you can’t take photos inside.
