This church is amazing both inside and out. The rustication on the exterior is magnificent and the interior has the wow factor in so many ways. A fantastic ceiling and altar; interesting art works and floor.
If you're entering Spaccanapoli from the West, this is the first church you encounter. The exterior is interesting, rather forbidding; the interior is spectacular. It's worth sitting quietly and attempting to spot a square centimetre or two of the whole interior that isn't covered by...More
Standing in the Piazza Gesu Nuovo is the Gesu Novo church. Quite ugly from the outside with its' black facade. But as they say you cannot judge a book by its' cover. Absolutely stunning inside. Even if you are not religious, all churches are worth...More
the ornate building style and the amazing amount of gold along with the so-spacious architecture are awe-inspiring. the doctor who was made a saint is there, and the statue of him is a touchstone for those who line up to kiss his feet and touch...More

Monday through Saturday the Church is open 7:30 to 12:45 PM/ and 4:00 PM to 8 PM. Sunday it is open 7:00 AM to 2:00 PM and 4:00 PM to 9 PM. Of course, it is better to arrive a little later than opening hours and arrive with sufficient time to view the church before closing times. Masses during week days are 7:30, 9:00, 10:30, 12 and 4:30; Sundays 8:30, 10:00, 11:40, 1:00 and 4:30 and 8:00 PM. Some these services are limited to a small chapel rather than the whole church (such as the 10:30 mass). I have been there during the 10:30 mass and had access to the principal part of the church, but it is always better to try to visit when there is no mass in progress. Also, the light, in my opinion, is better in the mornings than in the afternoon.
