Lovely church and museum with an amazing fresco painted ceiling. We saw this church early in our visit to Naples and it is worth a visit but the amount of churches and Basilicas in this city is unbelievable.

It was a nice church, not as spectacular as it looks on the photos but beautiful. There were no other tourists when we went on a Saturday morning, surely deserves more attention
