Santa Maria Egiziaca a Pizzofalcone

Santa Maria Egiziaca a Pizzofalcone is a Baroque-style, Roman Catholic, Basilica church on the street of the titular name in the hill of Pizzofalcone, in the historic center of Naples, region of Campania, Italy. The church layout was initially designed by Cosimo Fanzago.

A small church was located at the site in 1616, but in 1639, a group of five Augustinian monks from the convent associated with the church of Santa Maria Egiziaca a Forcella founded a convent in a palace next to the small church. In 1648, they first hired Cosimo Fanzago to design the church. In 1665, the role fell to Francesco Antonio Picchiatti, and in 1691 to 1716 to Antonio Galluccio. The latter architects modified Fanzago's designs significantly.
