Just opposite Chiesa Gesu Nuovo are the monastery and cloisters of this enclosed garden. The columns and walls are covered in decorated tiles of bright yellow, green, terracotta and blue. There is a fee for entry but the bonus is the tranquility of escaping the...More

Really nice building and garden with all these mosaiqes. Also small museum, some old roman parts and shop with all souvenires possible. Before going check the opening hours.

Sorry, 3rd day in Naples and getting a little "churched out". As ever, a beautiful church and, if you're passing, worth a look in.

Once a woman had entered this convent, she would never see the outside world again. Consequently some of the outside world was brought inside, in to the cloister, by way of the beautiful ceramic tiles depicting nature and activities in the surrounding city. As you...More
