Citrus scents in the
Monastero di Santa Chiara8
Why locals love it
The Monastery of Saint Chiara is undoubtedly one of the most loved places of both locals and visitors. There’s a simple and elegant gothic church, a cloister – one of the most beautiful and best preserved in Naples and, despite being in the very heart of the city, a feeling of peace and complete silence.
Why you should visit it
Come here to see one of the finest churches in Naples. It’s a great place to escape the chaos of the centre when you’re out and about exploring. Take a few minutes to sit and breathe in the citrus scents. The cloister will leave you speechless, especially when illuminated by sunlight.
Take some time to appreciate the majolica (earthenware pottery). You’ll notice that they’re all different and all amazing.
