Pass By: Piazza del Gesu Nuovo, Piazza del Gesu' Nuovo 2, 80134, Naples Italy
Piazza del Gesù is one of the most important, famous and symbolic squares of the historic center of Naples.
The square takes its name from the homonymous church here and has a central position with respect to the historical center of the city, in fact it is just a few steps from other important historical places, such as Via Toledo, Piazza Dante and Piazza San Domenico Maggiore.
Stop At: Gesu Nuovo Church, Piazza del Gesu 1, 80134, Naples Italy
The Church of the Gesù Nuovo took the place of an ancient noble palace, the Palazzo dei Sanseverino, when this was given to the Jesuits because of a confiscation. In creating the church, it was decided to keep part of the existing structure, in fact the façade was left intact. The visible contrast between the exterior and the interior of the church is surprising. The simplicity of the stone outside and the richness of the baroque inside make it one of the most beautiful churches in Naples.
Duration: 30 minutes
Stop At: Complesso Monumentale di Santa Chiara, Via Santa Chiara 49/c, 80134, Naples Italy
In the heart of the historic center of Naples rises the ancient Monumental Complex of Santa Chiara. Its construction was commissioned by King Roberto d'Angiò and his wife Sancia di Maiorca. The structure involved two monasteries: one for the Poor Clares and the other for the Franciscan friars. The church today presents itself in its original gothic forms, restored after the restoration following a bombardment during the Second World War, despite its baroque transformation of the 18th century. The cloister of the monastery is perhaps the most beautiful building of the complex with its colorful majolica and its seventeenth-century frescoes depicting saints, allegories and scenes from the Old Testament.
Duration: 1 hour 15 minutes
