Overview

The Monumental Complex of St. Chiara, including the Church, the Monastery and the Convent, had been raised since 1310 to 1328 by the will of the King Roberto d’Angio and his wife Sancia of Majorca. The sovereigns, both devoted to St. Francis of Assisi and St. Chiara, wanted to build a Franciscan citadel that housed in the Convent the Clarisses and in the contiguous Monastery the Friars Minor. The Church, central nucleus of the whole complex, rose with the title of Saint Host or Sacred Body of Christ, dedication suggested by the Eucharistic Miracle of Bolsena, happened in 1264; the denomination changed immediately in Santa Chiara, probably for the extraordinary number of Clarisses introduces in the Convent.

Unfortunately this tourist attraction,as probably many others,is frequented by very able pickpockets who work in teams to distract the wandering tourist. It's lovely but ATTENTION!

Sorry, 3rd day in Naples and getting a little "churched out". As ever, a beautiful church and, if you're passing, worth a look in.

Once a woman had entered this convent, she would never see the outside world again. Consequently some of the outside world was brought inside, in to the cloister, by way of the beautiful ceramic tiles depicting nature and activities in the surrounding city. As you...More

Enjoyed visiting the cloisters which are well maintained. The colour of the walls and pillars are amazing considering their exposure to the sun of Naples.

In the middle of noisy, busy Naples, this is an oasis of calm and beauty. The cloister is green, filled with beautiful hand painted tiles. Should definitely be included in any visit to Naples.

This 14th century Gothic church has the austerity of the Romanesque era. While the adjoining monastery has an elegant cloister and garden ornamented with had painted tiles and frescoes.

This is a great area of Naples. The archaeological museum is not far away and the surrounding streets are lovely. There are some great craft and bric-a-brac stalls in the grounds too. The cloisters are gorgeous - the painting on the pillars is so unusual...More

What an amazing place! You can just visit the church for free, but I highly recommend you go to the cloisters – there is an entry fee, but it’s only €6 and well worth it. The cloisters are beautiful, gorgeous gardens and amazing tiling on...More
