Our meeting point will be the church of San Gregorio Armeno. From the first access, the splendor will completely overwhelm you: from the ceiling, passing through the pulpits and chapels. Our journey will continue to Piazzetta Nilo, with the large sculpture of the Nile God, and the next stop is the church of Gesù Vecchio. The Jesuit order used the spectacularness of the Baroque to directly strike the faithful, who also became a spectator. This is precisely the first mother church of the order. Over time, and with the exponential increase in the power and importance of the Order of the Jesuits in Naples, a new building was chosen as a reference point: we are heading towards the church of Gesù Nuovo, located in the square of the same name. It was a civil building, Palazzo Sanseverino, then disused and used as a sacred building. The entrance is truly spectacular! The last stop is the the cloister of Santa Chira: in an almost mystical peace, the most precious maiolicas of the city. *The admission tickets to Santa Chiara Cloister are NOT included; you can easily buy them on the spot.
