San Diego all'Ospedaletto, Naples

San Diego all'Ospedaletto, also known as San Giuseppe Maggiore, is a Baroque-style church located on via Medina in the rione Carità in Naples, Italy. It is located across the street from the tall modern NH Ambassador Hotel and diagonal from the Palazzo Giordano and Questura.

The name of San Giuseppe Maggiore derives from a church of that name belonging to Arciconfraternity of the Mannesi (i falegnami), that was demolished nearby in the 16th century. The church was commissioned by Giovanna Castriota in 1514, a lady of the court of Giovanna III dei Castriota. It became a hospital for the poor, and later passed on to the Franciscan Order of Friars Minor. The present building was reconstructed in 1595 and dedicated to Saint Diego of Alcalá.
