This is a very unusual looking church as you approach it from the piazza and inside it is stunning. There was a mass on, as it was a Sunday but feel free to walk about. Its free to enter so worth a visit, even if...More

The outside of this church is definitely worth the visit to the square. The inside of the church was okay, it is kind of like the Pantheon in Rome. If it is open when you are there, by all means go in, but if it...More

This beautiful church with its reference to the Pantheon almost dominates the piazza. The beautiful lion statues and pillars outside are very impressive. I enjoyed being inside but sadly you cannot take photos inside. After seeing many churches I can really not remember what it...More

It is a very nice church, both from the outside and the inside. It reminds me somehow to the Pantheon in Rome (and the external colonnade to St. Peter's Basilica). It is imposing and makes a key part of Piazza del Plebiscito

The church itself is more impressive from the outside, and you really cant miss it when in Naples, situated in the big square of Piazza Plebscito, just across the Royal Palace. Inside it is just a big dome, but that is really magnificent!

This is a big church with a really big dome. It’s in a big square. It’s very nice looking if you can avoid the graffiti. Naples doesn’t do a good job in keeping things clean and that detracts somewhat.

We couldn't miss this 19th-century church when we exited Naples' Royal Palace. The structure with its 174-foot-high central dome on the West side of Plazza Plebiscito immediately captures attention. It features Neoclassical architecture with a dome patterned after the Pantheon's circular basilica in Rome, while...More

The dome of the basilica dominates the surrounding square. In side is a welcome peaceful break from the noise of Naples. Well worth a look inside to see the vast dome from below.
