The Cathedral of Naples
Near our hotel is one of the oldest and most important churches in the city: the Cathedral of Naples.
The construction of this marvelous Cathedral was commissioned by Charles of Anjou in 1294, on the site of two ancient basilicas: Santa Restituta and Stefania.
As soon as you arrive in front of the Duomo you can admire its facade with three portals: about 50 meters high and in neo-Gothic style. The facade has: two lions positioned on the sides of the main portal, groups of angels in relief, the cusp, the upper clypeus with the Coronation of the Madonna, the figures of San Pietro and San Gennaro with cardinal Enrico Capece Minutolo. The right door is opened only for the festivities that celebrate San Gennaro and, rarely, also in other cases.
