Very exiting palazzio. I did not know this place if I had not gone to Naples

The most beautiful sculpture I have ever seen. A must-see for any visitor to Naples.

Opened my eyes to a whole school and tradition of Italian art that I hadn't really been aware of before. (As non-specialists we hear a lot about Florentine art, Venetian art.... but practically nothing about Neapolitan art.) The veiled Christ is absolutely miraculous, so is the "disinganno". The floor, the celling, those "anatomical machines" in the museum are astonishing.

Thanks to the people in the Bar Faro in Anacapri for telling me about this.

The duke/count of SanSevero was cleary a real Renaissance man in all senses of the world and this museum gives a clear sense of his accomplishments.

it is a nice short visit to add to your itinery when in Naples as is is different from the more grand churches and monuments which you tend to gravitate towards.

When I have guests The Cristo Velato is one of the first sites that I suggets to visit. To reach it you need to enter the heart of the ancient Napoli. By this way You will be already in the middle of every thing and you start with an important historical site, not only for the statue of the Cristo, but also for the importance of the Prince Raimondo di Sangro. But this history you should read bu your self before enter his chapel.
There is a fee to enter but is one of the most well spent that I remember since I travel.
