While walking in Spaccanapoli we spotted this church more than once and thought it was nothing special from the outside, so we walked on. Before leaving we were wandering nearby once more and this time we did go in and visit it. The church is...More

I went to a bunch of the churches in Naples and this one is far and away the best. It doesn’t look that great from the outside but inside it’s great. The main alter is full of detail and the side alters are all great....More

I would not have known about this but for the suggestion of my friend Grazia, who teaches art in Napoli. The elliptical staircase alone is worth a visit. It was designed by the same architect, Sanfelice, who created the Palazzo Spagnolo in the Via Vergini....More

Chiesa di San Giovanni a Carbonara is located a bit away from the main streets and probably not one of the typical tourist attractions. The church is rather unimpressive from the outside - still, the more beautiful it is from the inside: The walls are...More

This is a beautiful church. The medieval frescos are just stunning and so many of them. The frescos depicting medieval monastic life are very interesting. There are also a selection of beautiful paintings depicting scenes from the life of Christ. These are all in the...More

Chiesa di San Giovanni a Carbonara is a lovely place. It is several hundred years old and it contains some really magnificent art works. It is a site you should visit if you are in the area.
