The 448 historical and Monumental churches of Naples

Churches from Naples:

I was wondering about opening a thread for naples' churches like i did for my city, milan: in naples are counted stricto sensu 448 monumental churches, so a little bit more than the double of the ones we might find in milan, and toghether with Rome (and not so distantiated to) it is by far the city with the highest number of monumental churches in the world. So here you are a first taste to monumental naples, a city that did not gave to the world only beautiful opera pieces, gelato and pizza but also one of the highest amount of art humanly tolerable
The vast majority of these churches (except very very few, we're talking about 3 or 4 churches) I will show you are stiffed in the 17 square kilometers area of the Historical City centre of Naples, the biggest in the world, even bigger than the one in Rome. It is a UNESCO world heritage site.
