Santa Caterina a Formiello

The church of ‘Santa Caterina a Formiello’ sits adjacent to the old city gate of ‘Porto Capuana’. Despite its shabby facade the interior is stunning. Gold embellishes every inch of the elegant interior and the frescoes are delightful to behold. The dome is said to be the oldest in Naples and dates from the early 16th century.
