A gem

An absolute must see. Only small but the Veiled Christ is spectacularly beautiful and moving. Saw lots of art, churches etc in a week long visit but this was a highlight.

Plenty of history to be viewed here. Make sure you get in early as there are plenty of schools turn up around mid morning. Only takes a couple of hours to walk round but worth the look

Not a whole lot to this chapel but it's worth a visit because it is so unusual. Of all the statues and sculptures I've seen of Christ, I have never seen him as imagined after death by the sculptor. Make sure you look for the figure over the front door - a man who seems to be climbing out of... More

A very good place to go to see lovely marble works of art. The cappella is small and not good when crowded but choose a time that is easy to look around and get the head phones - it helps.

It is an amazing Baroque chapel filled with beautiful works of art, including the Veiled Christ and The Release from Deception. These are amazing marble sculptures, one of the figure of Christ hidden under a veil. The other is a monument... More

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.
