We were the only people there on our visit - the building is magnificent and full of surprises in parts; the sculptures were great to look at, including the completely over the top and fascinating nativity statues. They certainly capture all sorts of real-life scenes!

Wonderful building, splendid terrace with unforgetable views and sculptures from renowned masters. Spend your time looking for the details of the huge Napolitan cradle. Some paintings deserves an attentive looking.
