UNMISSABLE MONUMENTS

San Severo Chapel and Veiled Christ

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.
 

Archaeological Museum of Naples (MANN)

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.
