Chapel of the Treasure of San Gennaro

Chapel of the Treasure of San Gennaro

 

 

 

Naples Cathedral was built by the Anjou kings in XIV century. One of its chapels is dedicated to the Saint Patron of Naples, Gennaro. In XVII century, for a vow to Saint Gennaro, after a terrible period of war, siege, pestilence and Vesuvius eruptions, the Neapolitans built an adjacent beautiful chapel decorated by the best baroque artists, and the rich donations, often made by Neapolitan master goldsmiths, constituted the marvelous San Gennaro Treasure
