Pio Monte della Misericordia, Naples

4.5
Famous for its collection of artwork, Pio Monte della Misericordia houses a museum, library, and art gallery. The 17th-century church features white marble halls and ornate decoration. The exposed altar showcases perhaps the church's most famed piece, Caravaggio's "Seven Acts of Mercy." The side chapels include more paintings from Caravaggio, along with the works by Santafede, Giordana, and D'Onofrio. Adjacent to the museum is a picture gallery filled with more art, refreshingly non-museum in presentation. Upstairs, a small exhibit draws parallels between the works in the chapel and those in the gallery.

  • Pay 8 euro to enter into Pio Monte della Misericordia is the best thing to do in Naples. To see the one of the Caravaggio's painting is an extraordinary experience. Amazing is also the museum at 1st floor. I strongly recommend to visit this place.

The painting here is absolutely magnificent.Alot of things to see and very useful audio tour with izi travel app which is free. Worth the visit!
