About San Francesco Di Paola, Naples
The first thing that grabs your eye at Piazza del Plebiscito, Naples’ largest square, is the grand colonnade of 38 Doric columns of this neoclassical 1817 church. Ferdinand I wanted it to evoke the Pantheon, and had it built to celebrate the restoration of his rule after Napoleon. Inside are a series of lovely paintings, frescoes, altarpieces and statues. The main attraction is the altar by Anselmo Cangiano in 1641, a beautiful thing of marble, precious stones and lapis lazuli.

Beautiful Church, inspired to the shapes if the Panteon in Rome. Only downside: It's closed between 12:00 and 16:00
Really pretty! Urban myth says George Lucas got inspired by it to invent the buildings of the planet Naboo
Impressive circular cathedral. Great place for a party! Too bad they won't let me take pics inside.
Couldn't get in when. I visited and outside is Scruffy and run down people use the square as a dog park so a bit messy Such a shame looks like it could be spectacular
Lovel shaded promenade
