Overview

An ancient image of the Virgin Mary from the 5th or 6th Century, in a small church annex of the crypt of San Gaudioso, is part of the original construction of the Monastic complex of Santa Maria della Sanità which over the Centuries has undergone various drastic changes. The crypt, built in 1577, was handed over to the Dominicans who gave the lay Dominican architect Giuseppe Donzelli, also known as Fra'Nuvolo, the job of planning the church. The façade is white and decorated with gray architectural elements.
