Overview

The church of San Gregorio Armeno is a splendid example of almost ancient architecture. Dating to the 8th Century, the church's interior was redone in 1580 with lavish use of gold leaf and artwork by famous masters of the time. The exceptional wooden ceiling was carved and painted by Teodoro d'Errico, while the frescoes are by Luca Giordano, the great baroque painter of Naples. You should also visit the beautiful cloister of the attached monastery, beautifully preserved and graced by a marble fountain, where one may enjoy the view of the fascinating Bay of Naples.
