Overview

The oldest basilica of Naples, the chapel of Santa Restituta was erected in the 4th century and was initially dedicated to the Saviour. The Stefania basilica was destroyed by a fire and was rebuilt by the bishop Stefano II. When the cathedral was built on the site of the basilica of Stefania it was reworked into a Gothic form, as was the basilica of Santa Restituta. Restoration works over the years have brought to light bits of columns and fragments of a paleo-Christian flooring.
