Santa Chiara Church, Naples Reviews - Write a Review
Excellent monument of medieval culture and architecture. There are many tombs of members of Angevin Royal family and local aristocracy. Many tombs are with effigies of deceased in full suits of armor. Admission is free but any donation is welcomed and highly appreciated. Visitors are allowed to take non commercial photo without flash light.
Amazing church!!! So beautiful, serene and impressive. Loved it. A must-see!!
Even though the cloister is one of the most iconic place for touristis coming from all over Europe to Naples it is very bad-kept, especially if we consider the igenic aspect. As regards the monastry, it was destroyed during WWII, and the modern rebuildng lacks all its original charme and richness. Furthermore the visit is only partially free, since the finest part of the complex requires a ticket.
Gorgeous monastery with beautiful courtyard. Church entrance is free but you have to pay for the monastery.
S. Chiara Monastery is the one of the best places which I have never been in Naples!
