It isn't a very big museum, but it's definitely worth a visit. You can spend quite a bit of time admiring the intricacies and exquisite details of the sculptures. The net on 'Disillusion' is quite remarkable... How you carve that out of marble boggles my...More

Aside from the Pieta this is the most beautiful piece of art that I have been blessed to see. The workmanship is amazing and breathtaking. This is not the only beautiful part of the Sansevero - the entire building is worth a visit.

We thought a quick visit to see the famous "Veiled Christ" would be enough. Big mistake! The chapel is full with great sculptures and paintings. One should spend at least an hour there. Don't miss the "anatomical machines" in the lower room.

This place is all about seeing the statue of the Veiled Christ and for that it’s worth it. Statues leave me cold normally but this is amazing. Quite how it tricks the eye into believing the Christ statue is covered in a veil and that...More
