The Sansevero Chapel has been turned into a beautiful Museum. Home to some really amazing objects of art, the chapel itself is quite striking looking. There is a lot to see here so do make sure to plan accordingly. Located on Via Franscesco, it is quite a popular touristic site.

The sculpture of the Veiled Christ is definitely not to be missed. The sculpture is that of Jesus Christ after his Cruxification shrouded in a sheet. It is a heart-wrenching site that people from far and wide come to see. How the architecture has achieved this through a sculpture is a wonder. Besides this, there is a lot more to see as well. Statues, paintings, and the altar of the church itself are quite spectacular.

  • It's small, but what you see is AWESOME. Don't miss it!! By the way it's not allowed to take photos inside and visitors can't use cellphones too. This museum should be much more famous, now it's one of my favorites. Oh, you may try the audio guide if you want to know every single detail. But it's not necessary, we didn't buy it (the texts inside are in English too).

  • Very impressive statues where the artist managed to reproduce the fine movements of a veil. Extraordinary feeling of lightness though this is made of stone. Church is small queue can be very long outside, buy tickets online in advance to use the fast track queue.

  • Veiled Christ is wonderful. Detailed human arteries also amazing. Short yet worthwhile visit. Wish you could sneak photos, but happy they don't allow as it would alter the experience.

  • Absolutely beautiful hand carved marble everywhere. NO pictures allowed inside, but you can purchase a book with pictures or just selected pictures if you choose. The veiled Christ is in the centre, you can walk around all sides, but a barrier prevents one from touching it.

  • We went to the Museo Cappella Sanservo which houses the "Veiled Christ" by Giuseppe Sanmartino. It's an incredible piece which is breathtaking in it's intricacies... The fabric veil looks like it's a actual fabric and to know it's marble--one solid piece of marble. If you're in Naples, you should def invest the time to go and def do the audio guide to understand all of the pieces in that museum. Amazing work!
