  • Stupenda solo che in questo momento è in ristrutturazione e non si può ammirare in tutta la sua bellezza.

  • L'origine della chiesa risale al 1609, quando un borghese, Giovanni Antonio Bianco, decise di aprire nella sua abitazione una cappella dedicata a Santa Brigida; a fianco vi realizzò anche un conservatorio per vedove. Questi lavori furono svolti all'insaputa della curia di Napoli e pertanto vennero subito bloccati; le strutture vennero vendute alla pia Giovanna Guevara e, con la licenza arcivescovile e con le sovvenzioni della pia donna, la struttura poté aprire nel 1610. Infine passò ai padri Lucchesi (Ordine della Madre di Dio) che tra il 1637 e il 1640 espansero la chiesa e il convento, che attualmente è parte di Palazzo Barbaja. Nella realizzazione della nuova chiesa, che rimpiazzò la preesistente cappella del palazzo, furono rispettate le condizioni imposte dalle autorità spagnole, dietro sollecito del castellano del Maschio Angioino, che riteneva un ostacolo al tiro delle cannoniere una cupola di maestose dimensioni; per questo motivo fu innalzata una cupola alta solo nove metri. I Lucchesi rimasero fino alla prima espulsione avvenuta nel decennio francese; reinseriti dai Borbone di Napoli nella medesima struttura (ma modificata, poiché parte delle originali strutture furono inglobate in altre opere civili), subirono un'ulteriore espulsione da parte dei Savoia nel 1862. La parrocchia è retta dall'Ordine della Madre di Dio. La chiesa è sede dell'Ordine Militare del SS. Salvatore e di S. Brigida di Svezia
