NileGuide Expert tip:
Don't miss the 14th-century fresco paintings by Pietro Cavallini in the Brancaccio chapel.
- The church was built in 1283 by King Charles II of Angevin, and is part of the largest and wealthiest group of convent buildings in the city. It is the spiritual home of the Dominican Order in the Kingdom of Naples, as well as the seat of the Parthenopean University. In the past, devotees lived in an old convent in the area. The San Michele Arcangelo a Morfisa church (probably built in the 10th Century, eventually to become the side chapel of a new edifice) bears witness to its existence. You will find a gamut of styles, representing successive periods of history and architecture.
