Chiesa di San Gregorio Armeno
Housing the relics of Saints Gregory and Patricia (whose blood ‘liquifies’ each Tuesday), 16th-century San Gregorio was built on the site of a Roman temple and is one of the finest examples of Baroque style in the city. Among the lavish decorations are frescoes by Luca Giordano and Paolo de Matteis and a superb wooden ceiling. The beautiful, peaceful cloister is planted with orange trees and has wonderful views over the Bay of Naples.
