Basilica Santuario Carmine Maggiore - Review

The first thing people usually notice about this 13th century Neapolitan Baroque church is its 75 metre belltower. Coming close, you’ll find the marks of destruction left over from WWII. But its only when you step inside that you’ll be taken aback - the sheer wealth of  stucco, carved wood, polychrome marble, gildwork, frescoes and maiolica can overwhelm the unprepared. Check out the monument to Conradin of Swabia, the various altarpieces, the 12th century icon of the virgin in Chapel of the Virgin del Carmelo and the sacristy frescoes.

There is a monument to the fallen of WWI to the left of the church.

Basilica Santuario Carmine Maggiore, Naples Reviews

  • Alla scoperta della storia, bellissima.chiesa, tante le vicende che le danno un alone di mistero. Da vedere

  • Excellent monument of medieval culture and architecture. Unfortunately original interiors were missing inside. But in the cloister three tombs of local knights are still exist, tho of XIV century and one of XV the. All knights are in the armors of their time. Admission is free but any donation is welcomed and highly appreciated. Visitors are allowed to take non commercial photo without flash light.

  • Italy is an amazing country, so much history. Napoli is a great destination to go, but please be careful. Once it gets dark it gets a little dangerous. Safe travels!

  • Perfect church
