This cathedral is stunning, beautiful paintings, chapels, relics and a working place of worship. Very moving and humbling to visit when a mass was taking place. Lots to see, or just sit and contemplate. Don't miss it.

It is a very interesting visit and a must see if you come to Naples. It is very close to the Duomo so you can visit both.

Tousands of tiny colourful gems, mostly gifts from all the Great in Europe - even Napoleon - to honor the San Gennaro cult. Loved it
