The Cloister of Santa Chiara
Do not miss this marvel: the corridors of the cloisters are decorated with some bucolic paintings that will not leave you feeling indifferent.
A magnificent cloister.
Although this is about the Basilica of Santa Chiara, the famous cloisters alone which enclose this building have already turned it into a real museum. Besides this, the paintings and frescos that decorate every inch of its interior walls make this place worth a visit. Its exterior shows you the oldest gothic construction in the city. Its interior keeps one of Naples' treasures. Each corridor of the cloisters is decorated by some frescos with different biblical and religious scenes that teach visitors and show them the way towards the museum's interior inside the church. The vegetation around the building has been carefully chosen to complement the painted bucolic scenes. It is said that this interior landscape in the basilica has been maintained this way since the 18th century. The whole Santa Chiara complex, that is to say the monastery, museum and cloisters are found on the same route as the Duomo in the district of Spaccanapoli, where you can make the most of travelling back in time through these monuments and find out about many key parts of the city.
