Bursting with so many interesting sculptures.. mesmerising features and historical information..I would have liked to stay here for much longer to take in the atmosphere, but there was nowhere to sit, we had to keep oving and walking about... surreal surroundings!

A little church in the corner of Carbonara st. Turns out to have some very nice and easily visible statues of a local noble family. Very accessible.

I would not have known about this but for the suggestion of my friend Grazia, who teaches art in Napoli. The elliptical staircase alone is worth a visit. It was designed by the same architect, Sanfelice, who created the Palazzo Spagnolo in the Via Vergini....More

Chiesa di San Giovanni a Carbonara is located a bit away from the main streets and probably not one of the typical tourist attractions. The church is rather unimpressive from the outside - still, the more beautiful it is from the inside: The walls are...More
