I almost didn’t stop here because we were visiting in the winter so I thought the courtyard might be a bit bare, but it was so lush and beautiful. This really is a beautiful, special space with a meditative quality that you can feel upon entering. It really is one of the most beautiful spots in all of Naples, which is saying a lot.

In the roaring tourist heart of Naples you step into this peaceful oasis of beauty and tranquility. A large convent with the most stunning garden.

Very ornate church and you would not think that from the lobby. Guarded by the Nun’s and not allowed to enter unless your shoulders are covered up (this always surprises me in hot climates and guess God would probably forgive you!). Once inside it is stunning!

I'm not the biggest fan of this overly ornate style, but this is a great example. Try to see the cloister and the stair also.

We had no idea what to expect, as we walked up the stairs to the Cloister. But it was breathtaking, the whole experience from the courtyard, to the private chapels, to the view down on the Chiese. A private view into a beautiful place.

Most visitors to Napoli miss this hidden treasure and I'm not sure why. The church is lovely as to be expected, but the cloister is the main reason to visit...it is not easy to find respite from the chaotic bombardment of Napoli, but this place offers the opportunity for escape in spades. After taking in your 1000th presepe or 1,000,000th shepherd figurine on Gregorio Armeno, slip inside here for half an hour of quiet meditation time...well worth the effort!

I spent a great amount of the morning pouring over the lavish and sumptuous decorative baroque interior. It was described by notaries long ago as ‘a room of Paradise on Earth’. One you stare above the horizon and touch base with the wooden roof , you realise what art is all about. Loved the artworks and sat for a further 30 minutes to recover, in the cloister with the fountain and statue.

Naples is chaos. This wonderful courtyard offers a display of flowers and cactae, and friendly nuns. Get their home made limoncello.

The San Gregorio Armeno (in the alley with the same name) is one of the most characteristic and unique churches in Napoli.
This original building was from the beginning of the 8th century and was dedicated to keeping the relics of Saint Gregory bishop of Armenia.
In the early 13th cebtury, it became a church with a monastery. The structure was finally transformed with the addition of four side chapels, a square apse with cupola and an entrance through the vestibule from the street in the late 16th cenutry.
Paint works on the ceiling, the dome and the nave are real master pieces of art.
Finally, the alterations in the Rococo style during the second half of the eighteenth century gave the church its present appearance.
Admission of the church is free.
