Anyone going to Naples should make it a point to visit this chapel. It has the most amazing sculptures, especially the Christo Vellato (Veiled Christ) that is absolutely astounding.

This is a must see on your visit to Naples. An audio guide is essential to appreciate the story behind the marble sculptures. The statues alone are definitely worth the visit. There was a couple of other small areas to visit but not so much. Shame pictures were not allowed even without the use of flash. It was fairly quiet... More

It took us a long time to find Sansevero but it was well worth it. The sculpture of the Veiled Christ is one of the most beautiful artworks I have ever seen. We kept walking around it and admiring it from every angle. It costs 7 euros per person and I'm sure it will be the best 7 euros you... More

The place is really beautiful, but for that price and almost only one room, I cannot recommend it unfortunately. Not to mention the impossibility of taking photos.

It's quite small but still very impressive. You should not miss this one, at least not if there is not a huge queue.

I have been here 4 different times with groups and each time it is amazing and the groups are blown away. The sculptures are fantastic, the detail mind blowing and the veiled Christ leaves one breathless.

It's interesting to compare my experience with those reviews with lower ratings. It's true that this is a small chapel, no pictures are allowed and there isn't a lot to see but what is here is pretty amazing. I'm not religious but the Veiled Christ is one of the most memorable things I've ever seen seen. It seems almost impossible... More
