Church of Santa Chiara Naples Reviews
Lovely art! May 03, 2011
The Church of Santa Chiara is a church in Naples, obviously, but the sight is also affiliated with a monastery, tombs and an archaeological museum. This is more of a heads up, as I just went to see the church.
The church dates from the fourteenth century and was built by the prevailing monarch of the city (they are buried within the wider sight). The church is fitted up in a rather grand baroque style, and got restored after it was damaged through bombing during the second world war. Inside there are some great traces of frescoes which just remind you how old the building is, as well as some wonderful stained glass windows. The church is rather large, and although I suspect its not peopled as it might have been in the past, it’s still one of Naples most impressive churches after the Duomo of course.
Worth visiting if you are free for a short time in Naples!
