The Veiled Christ is one of the most fascinating and mysterious works that can be seen in Naples. Legend has it that the marble veil on the body of Christ is actually a veil of fabric, transformed into rock thanks to a special liquid invented by the Prince of San Severo, an illustrious alchemist. In reality it is only the result of the talent of Giuseppe Sanmartino, the sculptor who created it. In addition to the statue of the Veiled Christ, the Chapel also preserves other noteworthy works.
Inaugurated in 1816, it is one of the most important museums in the world for the quality and quantity of works kept. In addition to containing the finds from the excavations of Pompeii, it houses finds from the Greco-Roman age, Egyptian and Etruscan antiquities from the Borgia collection and ancient coins from the Santangelo collection.
One of the most symbolic places in the city is Piazza Plebiscito, a symbol of the new Neapolitan Renaissance. The Royal Palace was built right on the square at the end of the 1500s, built to house King Philip III on a passing visit to Naples.
If you are tired of the city, enjoy a nice boat trip, reach the fascinating island of Capri or the magnificent Amalfi Coast with its scents and colors.
