Church of Saint Gregory of Armenia

The Chiesa di San Gregorio Armeno is located in the centre of Naples and is a wonderful example of Neapolitan Baroque art. Here you can find beautiful frescoes, gilded ceilings, and cloisters full of orange trees. The church also hosts the relics of Saint Patricia, thus locals often call it 'Chiesa di Santa Patrizia'.

Do & See

The historic centre of Naples, with its splendid palaces and its popular and lively working-class districts, is now on the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Naples also boasts an underground city, as well as its famous panoramic views. Moreover, this hospitable city is marked by contrasts and popular traditions, such as the annual miracle whereby San Gennaro's 'blood' becomes liquid in front of the eyes of his followers. Naples is famous throughout the world primarily because of pizza (which, you'll discover, only constitutes a small part of the rich local cuisine) and popular music, with famous songs such as 'O Sole Mio'.
