Of Naples' medieval chapels, the San Lorenzo is perhaps one of the most beautiful. Celebrated around the world for its exceptionally scholarly past, it was initially a basilica dating back to the 500A.D.
The courtyard of the monastery is certainly quite beautiful. The Museo De’llopera here is certainly worth seeing. The smaller chapels in within the church are built in gothic and baroque style. There is also another, smaller museum within the premises. It also happens to be in the geographic and historical center of Naples. A visit to the church and its chapels and museums is sure to be a very wonderful experience in Naples.

Hidden gem. Worth leaving Brighton UK just for half an hour here. I ll return. The church is worth a visit but the ancient renains are unbelievable. And there were few there. It was v cool temperature wise.
I would highly recommend everyone to do a tour here, was one of the best guided visits I have experienced (our tour was in Italian, don't know about English, availability and quality-wise). The archaeological site is fascinating and very well preserved, the different strata of Greek/Roman/medieval city building are very visible. The part of the Roman forum is really illustrative of the period, and the arched Greek cistern is especially worth seeing, as such structures are very rare. The church complex is also worth a visit, especially with the information from the tour. Highly recommended!
A very educative visit but a guide is needed. Otherwise it is just a series of ruins built over one another. But very well maintained.
One of the best Neapolitan churches. It's architecture is expressively Gothic. There are a lot of medieval tombs of XIV-XV centuries. Admission is free but any donation is welcomed and highly appreciated. Visitors are allowed to take non commercial photo without flash light.
I listened to a story in Italian here.
