This is a small chapel that has the most amazing marble statue. It is Christ covered in a veil after his death. It is amazing the detail of the body shown under the carving of the marble veil. Truly a work,of art !

Incredibly small, but jam-packed chapel full of stunning works. Most importantly, the 'Veiled Christ' its absolutely breathtaking. It is incredibly moving; moreso than any statue I have ever seen. 7 Euro is a tad high for shiny place, but that statue is worth it. I skipped the 4.5 Euro audio guide, which was probably wise given you spend all of... More

Photography is forbidden:( Sculptures, esp. Jesus Chist are beautiful. Price of the ticket is 7Euro (regular), but with Naples arte card - 5 Euro.

The most notable things to see in the Museo Capella Sansevero are the scupltures - virtuoso 18th century statues of the Veiled Christ, Modesty, and Indifference.

Full of art and history, this chapel will struck you for the beauty of its sculptures. I recommend to linger on the details and then on the masterpiece of the "Cristo Velato" . Finally, take your time to visit the underground floor to find out about the history and stories related to the site.

Sansevero's chapel is a jewel in the center of the old Napoli. The collection of sculptures is awesome, specially the Veiled Christ and the Release from Deception. The only problem is the long queues to visit it and that is a little bit expensive.

Very beautiful small Chapelle, the highlight being the realistic marble veiled Christ in the center. Beautiful polychromatic marble on the floor, marble sculptures on the walls (with a man trying to leave his coffin on top of the entrance, or a man trying to escape a delicate marble net representing his demons). Don't forget to go downstairs have a look... More

The unbelievable "cristo velato" ( literally "the veiled Christ" ) has been studied for centuries and, as far as i know, nobody has... More
