Santa Chiara

Construction of Santa Chiara dates back to 1310. Founded by King Robert of Anjou and his second wife Sancha of Majorca, the church was opened for worship 30 years later in 1340. Two convents were also built; one for nuns and one for monks.

In the mid-1700s, the church interior was remodeled in Baroque style, however most of Santa Chiara was destroyed in August of 1943 during World War II bombings. When it was rebuilt 10 years later, it was returned to its original gothic style. The Monumental Complex of St. Chiara also includes the Opera Museum, which along with covering Neapolitan history, also exhibits items that survived the WWII bombings. Save time to visit the archaeological area at Santa Chiara. The remains of a Roman spa were discovered in the aftermath of the war. The spa is similar to those of Pompeii and Herculaneum.
