Santa Chiara Church, Naples Reviews
Extremely well-reconstructed, the Monastery complex is worth the visit. We started at the gardens, admiring the incredible patience and precision the architects observed to restore after such a heavy bombardment. Went on to watch the video recounting the history and process to get to what visitors can see today. Visited the excavation site in the premises to admire the incredible advancements they had back the days. Moved on to see (through a glass) the library. And finally strolled through the gardens and restored church. It was as if we were transported. Revived the pride with which it all was done and were able to witness, at least in part, the different styles used to keep this monument, a current/relevant one. Fun fact: one of the Monastery leaders decided back in the old days that it needed renovation, and that's how baroque style made it to this sanctuary. Definitely a top choice when visiting Naples.
In the heart of Naples, you can’t miss this beautiful cloister during your permanence! The ceramics in the inside are in the perfect mediterranean style and you will spend a lot of time admiring them. With your ticket you will have the possibility to visit an archaeological site and a typical Neapolitan Nativity scene!
Beautiful and tranquil. Worth the donation to get a bit of quiet and to support the excavations. The hand painted tiles tell many stories of Naples and from the Bible. Really take time to slow down while you’re here. At the end, enjoy a sampling of liquors made from various medicinal plants for a couple of euros.
The cloister is beautiful: the colours, the structure, the garden. Worth visiting!
Beautiful cloisters, interesting Roman bath remains. Nice cool place to stop on a hot day.
