Overview
More
The Monumental Complex of St. Chiara, including the Church, the Monastery and the Convent, had been raised since 1310 to 1328 by the will of the King Roberto d’Angio and his wife Sancia of Majorca. The sovereigns, both devoted to St. Francis of Assisi and St. Chiara, wanted to build a Franciscan citadel that housed in the Convent the Clarisses and in the contiguous Monastery the Friars Minor. The Church, central nucleus of the whole complex, rose with the title of Saint Host or Sacred Body of Christ, dedication suggested by the Eucharistic Miracle of Bolsena, happened in 1264; the denomination changed immediately in Santa Chiara, probably for the extraordinary number of Clarisses introduces in the Convent.

What an amazing place! You can just visit the church for free, but I highly recommend you go to the cloisters – there is an entry fee, but it’s only €6 and well worth it. The cloisters are beautiful, gorgeous gardens and amazing tiling on...More

The famous Majolica Cloister is in the backyard of the church. "Don't sit, don't touch" this was the instruction at the ticket office. Don't miss the museum at the corner of the monastery! The Basilica church of Santa Chiara faces Via Benedetto Croce, which is...More

lovely to step into this tranquil place after the bustle of the streets of Naples. The beautiful garden with the benches and flowers and trees. This is really stepping into another world. Highly recommended

It is not a huge place, but I was trully impressed. The central garden is extremely beautiful, and the museum a trip into different stages of Catholic belief and practices in Napoli. I recommend it.

First when you walk up the outside is dirty and there is graffiti all over the church and the walls. That wasn’t great. Inside the courtyard is very nice. But then if you read you find out that it was all bombed in WW2 and...More

We consider Santa Chiara to have one of the most beautiful cloisters that we have seen worldwide. I knew nothing about the magnificent tile work here until I entered the garden. It overwhelmed with scores of octagonal pillars coated with majolica ceramic floral decorations in...More

Santa Chiara is as beautiful as it’s impressive. Beautiful cloisters and decorated columns and walls. And so peaceful after the hustle and bustle of Spaccanapoli. A real haven and a must if you visit Spaccanapoli.
