Cloister of Santa Chiara Reviews
Merita una visita. Complesso tenuto molto bene, bel museo, splendide maioliche. Ricostruzione ottima dopo il bombardamento del 1943 more »It's worth a visit. Complex kept very well, beautiful museum, beautiful majolica. Excellent reconstruction after the 1943 bombing
Fantastic quiet oasis in the centre of Naples a must visit place, amazing gardens a great place to get some excellent photos !! more »
Beautiful cloister in the center of Naples. The tiled benches and painted walls are stunning and worth the 6 euro entry. There is a small museum and archaeological area that explains the history of the cloister.
This is probably the most aesthetic place in Naples and one of my favourites. It's perfect to spend the most warm hours of the day admiring the characteristics Maioliche and walking around the cloister. In the inside there's also a double language video explaining the history of Santa Chiara and the abbey. Also the museum with the old Roman church's ruins is really worthy
