Loved this little chapel and the statues within it, especially the veiled Christ. We thought is was an amazing work. After waiting outside for an hour to see it though, they could have allowed us to take a photo without flash. This is the reason for the 4 stars instead of 5. They were very strict about this and had... More

probably best museum/chapel ever! I am crazy about the 2 statues called "Modesty" and "Disillusion" as well. Of course The Veiled Christ is cool and the other stuff.

First, Sorry if I a don't look very intellectual. First you have to do a long queu, then you pay 7 euros and then you see that it is a small Chapel, beautiful though.

We walked through Via San Gregoria Armeno (Christmas Alley) and the historical alleys of Naples to reach the Sansevero chapel and museum; this was exciting and interesting enough. Then we entered the chapel; an amazing building, and the magnificent carving of the veiled Christ is a must see. Also make sure you venture down to see the anatomical display.....the question...

After navigating the charming old Naples streets I finally found the Sansevero chapel. Christ's statue in marble was the most beautiful sculpture I had ever seen!, truly a thing of beauty. The place is marred by overzealous attendants but it is a small price to pay for enjoying this remarkable place

Located in an unpretentious neighbourhood, the "cristo bellato" is unquestionably one of the best statues you will ever see. Other statues and pieces of art also located in the museo also are worthy on their own but the centre-piece is a bucket list must see if you have any interest in art whatsoever.

We were not sure whether to come or not, but we did, and we didnot regret this decision.. you have to come and see it for yourself, what's all the hype's about. It was not merely hype, it's art, in its highest standard and form

The Veiled Christ seems to be more than real due to the unbelieveble artist sculpture skills ability. Personally I believe the same consideration works for the Disillusion. Amazing art masterpieces! Personally I would suggest to visit together San Gregorio Armeno, Sansevero and underground Naples because it should take half a day all together with no lines
