The inside of this church is full to bursting with amazing art works. A real feast for the eyes. The story of Raymundo's collecting and his interest in scientific experimentation and how it was quashed after his death by the Catholic church was fascinating. Photos...More

Exceptional sculpture inside the small church. It is worth going to Sansevero only to view that. One cannot believe one's eyes. The veil looks so flimsy. All made out of one block of concrete. Really unbelievable.

Although I had been told it was a beautiful sculpture I didn’t expect something so incredible. Sanmartino’s CristoVelato looks as if the sculptor had achieved a way of liquifying Carrara marble....Truly a masterpiece very moving.

The Veiled Jesus sculpture is indeed incredible. I just find 7 euros entry to be an absolute ripoff for a place like this. But still i would not miss it.
