The place is really beautiful, but for that price and almost only one room, I cannot recommend it unfortunately. Not to mention the impossibility of taking photos.

It's quite small but still very impressive. You should not miss this one, at least not if there is not a huge queue.

I have been here 4 different times with groups and each time it is amazing and the groups are blown away. The sculptures are fantastic, the detail mind blowing and the veiled Christ leaves one breathless.

It's interesting to compare my experience with those reviews with lower ratings. It's true that this is a small chapel, no pictures are allowed and there isn't a lot to see but what is here is pretty amazing. I'm not religious but the Veiled Christ is one of the most memorable things I've ever seen seen. It seems almost impossible... More

Cappella Sansevero is an amazing private chapel in the heart of Naples, belonging to Sansevero family and founded by Prince Sansevero, a mysterious person he devoted himself to experiments and alchemy. The Chapel houses one of the world's finest sculptures the "Cristo Velato" (veiled Christ). unique. un-missable. wonderful. the only Cristo Velato justifies a journey to Naples!!!
