I visited the Chapel in May 2017. The chapel as a whole is one of the greatest pieces of art I've seen in my life. The figure of the Veiled Christ (Cristo Velato) captures the whole scene, but take time to admire also all the...More

The Veiled Christ is simply remarkable and must be seen in person to really be appreciated. Although photos are not allowed, you can walk around the sculture to view all the intricate detail up and down the marble figure. One has a strong urge to...More

Il Cristo Velato, Christ sculpted in marble is an absolute must ! Very impressive. Try to avoid crowded times. As the chapel is very small.

It is a very unusual church but worth a visit. Interesting history and background to it. The shrouded Jesus is beautiful the shroud looks real

Definitely worth a visit but very difficult to find! Worth it to see the sculpture of the veiled Jesus which is stunning!

we were taken to visit this whilst on a Vespa tour of the city. The Veiled Christ sculpture by Giuseppe Sanmartino was just incredible and worth seeing. The other marble statues there are also really impressive.

The veiled Jesus. What can I say. Speechless. An audio guide may be if assistance to help understand the lovingly preserved art pieces.

There are two queues to get in, with a fast-track for pre-booked tickets, which I hadn't realised. That said, the queue moved pretty quickly and wasn't a long wait. Was delighted that no photos are allowed, as it forced people to use their eyes and...More

We got there at 0905 - just after opening and it costs E7 a head. The museum Sansevro is small but two statues are amazing. Worth a visit but recommend you get here early
