San Carlo all'Arena, Naples:





Basilica della Neve:





Church in Piazza Martiri:



Some other baroque interior from naples (I still don't know the names of the churches):







...and with this one we're 197 I guess, a little less than a half of the total number of the 448 monumental and historical churches in Naples, the "city of 500 domes", as it was once known, I think it is enough for a first approach to this city and I hope you liked it!

thank you soo much! Yes, artistically this city is really a gem, even if not so touristically known or valorized as it really should be (given its monster potential) at least for the moment. But I'm sure things will change very soon!

Sant'Anna all'Arenella:



Santissima Annunziata a Fonseca:



Buon Camillo church:

Just a premise: in the whole thread, we're referring to just the comune of naples, that is the smallest administrative unit, not the greater naples area or the district, just the 117 square km of the city itself. The historical city center is the biggest in the world with 17 square km, even bigger than the one in Rome which is 15 square km. Those datas just makes the city even more and more impressive )

Santissima TrinitÓ dei pellegrini church, naples:

Ok after seeing those countles marvellous churches in naples I have now no doubts: Naples is the most beautiful city in the world, hands down! everyone who have enjoyed these picture would agree, just sooooo many, just sooo gorgeous, and the sea, and the volcano, and the island......than you for sharing! Pleas keep it up!!
Thank you for your very kind words. I don't know why i'm doing this since i'm not from naples ahaha! but still I think the city is a real gem with an historical and an artistical heritage that makes of it a really incomparable city. That said, I would prefer Rome best, since in Rome there are even more monumental churches and even bigger one, hey that is the pope's house!
But I guess naples would came close on a top 5 shortlist.
Also palaces are really wonderful in naples, but there are really thousands of them...
