The huge church interior was reconstructed after World War 2 and is still impressive. There is no charge. There is a fee to enter the cloister/museum/archaeological site/library complex (which survived more or less intact). The cloisters have beautiful frescoes and mosaics, and are a surprisingly...More

The church is so-so but adjacent outside is the cloister which was sooo impressive. Multiple outdoor paths lined with gorgeous citrus trees are all tiled in fantastic Majolica tiles with hunting scenes. The cloister opens at 9:30 am so plan a visit wisely.

Naples disappoints - run down and graffiti covered with rubbish in the streets it fails to impress even on the basis of the faded historic buildings but this monastery is something of an oasis amongst the other decay. The church is largely rebuilt after the...More

We went into this Gothic church after visiting its magnificent painted Majolica cloister. The interior proved to be in excellent condition, though it has been around since the 14th century and received a Baroque makeover in the 17th century. That's because a 1943 aerial bombing...More

10 minutes walk I cannot add a google map link here.If you look it up in google map you will see how close it is to Universita. It is worth visiting anyway, especially in spring!
