Discover the hidden wonders of Gesu Nuovo Church, a 16th-century church. Its somewhat plain exterior belies the interior's grand architecture and art collection.

For some local history, visit the small chapel dedicated to St. Joseph Moscati (1880–1927), a biochemistry teacher at the University of Naples and head physician of the Hospital of the Incurables. You can admire his statue and study the depiction of his medical activities on a triptych sculptured urn. Put Gesu Nuovo Church at the forefront of your travel plans using our Naples day trip tool.

  • It was a quick visit during the evening. It is a beautiful and peaceful church. We were so pleased and grateful to see an Altar and museum dedicated a local doctor hero. This is an inspiration.
  • Interesting facade, but partly under construction. The street dividing the city is nice to see. Worth a look if you're near.
