This Tiny Chapel is Home to Some of the Greatest Marble Sculptures in History


Located in the heart of Naples’ historic district is Cappella Sansevero, a small chapel/museum that is home to some of the greatest marble sculptures ever carved. It houses 28 works of art by many of the leading Italian artists of the 18th century. The chapel’s patron, Raimondo di Sangro, Prince of Sansevero, played a prominent role in shaping the design, direction and themes of the works and chapel.

A jewel of the world’s artistic heritage. Here, baroque creativity, dynastic pride, beauty and mystery blend to create a unique and almost timeless atmosphere. Museo Cappella Sansevero is open to the public from 9am – 7pm (closed on Tuesdays) and tickets range from 5-7 Euros.

Below you will find photos and detailed close-ups of some of the incredible works you will find. If you ever find yourself in Naples, be sure to drop in and marvel.
