Gesu Nuovo Naples Reviews
Nice history May 02, 2011
Built in the fifteenth century, the building was originally intended as a palace for the Prince of Salerno. For some reason, the palace was taken off him and sold to the Jesuit denomination, who have used it as a church since the sixteenth century.
I was rather taken aback by the unusual façade of this church. However, it is original and exactly as the prince intended it to look like. Inside, the chapels and main altar are nicely decorated but there is nothing that is major noteworthy. There are the remains of a few people that have been beatified or canonized, and that’s about it.
If you are nearby the tourist office (not the main one) in Naples, this church is worth a quick visit!
