The Cappella Sansevero (also known as the Capella Sansevero de' Sangri or Pietatella) is a chapel located on Via Francesco de Sanctis 19, just northwest of the church of San Domenico Maggiore, in the historic center of Naples, Italy. The chapel is more properly named the Chapel of Santa Maria della Pietà, or the Pietatella. It contains works of art by some of the leading Italian artists of the 18th century.

The Chapel is amazing.... You really get transformed into another time when these great masterpieces were created. There is no picture taking allowed so you can really emurse yourself in these works of art.
This is a true gem in Naples. If you visit Naples, please do yourself a favor and go visit this small chapel which is decorated with some of the most amazing and beautiful marble sculptures I have ever seen. True Master pieces.
This Naples museum houses the Veiled Christ, arguably one of the world's finest marble statues. The detail is incredible. There are also some models of skeletons showing detailed veins and arteries which make you wonder how this could be achieved 250years ago.
A sublime experience. The Veiled Christ is a masterpiece and a moving, tear inducing work of sculpture. It is a pity that one cannot take photos. The same city houses three Caravaggio paintings and photography is allowed. For this reason I removed a star. Otherwise this was a pleasant and recommended visit. The nearby cathedrals and Plaza are great stops as well.
Wow! How can someone produce a sculpture with that much detail. It is truly phenomenal. Read up on your Masonic symbology before you go. Plenty to see. Don't forget to marvel at the net sculpture behind the Veiled Christ.
Despite the very small size and the relatively high price, this chapel is totally worth visiting for two things. First, the Veiled Christ, which is a true masterpiece of sculpture. Second, the Anatomical Machines, although they are in fact a bit macabre. Stay away from the audio-guide, they're not worth their price. Be advised, no photos allowed, even without flash.
It was good to see, but pricey (€7) for effectively one room of (admittedly impressive) sculpture. I can't attach any pictures as cameras/mobiles weren't allowed. I'm struggling to say whether I'd recommend hence the three stars, but I'd say if you like sculptures, probably worth a visit
The place is hidden between narrow houses in Naples, but the sculptures are amazing. Definitely one of the best I have ever seen. Don't be discouraged by the line outside, it moves pretty quickly. Also it is not a huge place where can get "swallowed" by the Museum. The visit takes about 30 mins.
Well worth to see the veiled Christ. Worth paying the small amount extra and getting the audio guide. Queues start early.
Small but beautiful. The veilled Christ was nice, but the statue with the fishing net behind it was astonishing - don't forget to look at the other marble work on display.
Awesome! Turns out there's more sculptures than the Veiled Christ which is the centerpiece and exquisite. Definitely a must see no matter how long the line.
Ticket costs 7 euro, but it worth that! Be prepared to stay in line at least 1 hour, and don’t forget to buy the tickets before standing in line! You cannot make photos inside, just enjoy.
Simply the best of Naples, Italy! Check the marvelous Jesus Christ you have inside, among incredible fine arts in stone! Unfortunately, it is not allowed to take photos inside.
A church that outside is like a local house but inside there are hidden treasures. The veiled Christ is in the centre and is marvellous. The other statues are also beautiful hand curved (statue of Disillusion - the man inside a net- is also marvellous). The Anatomical machines with artery and vein systems almost perfectly intact at the underground chamber are also impressive. Especially if you read the story about them. The all experience of this church is a little bit creepy but is a must see at Naples. The only things that bothered me are that they don't allow pictures inside and that the entrance ticket is a little bit expensive for a such a small church.
Very impressive statues where the artist managed to reproduce the fine movements of a veil. Extraordinary feeling of lightness though this is made of stone. Church is small queue can be very long outside, buy tickets online in advance to use the fast track queue.
It's small, but what you see is AWESOME. Don't miss it!! By the way it's not allowed to take photos inside and visitors can't use cellphones too. This museum should be much more famous, now it's one of my favorites. Oh, you may try the audio guide if you want to know every single detail. But it's not necessary, we didn't buy it (the texts inside are in English too).
Fantastic visit! I recommend it. It's a must in Napoli!
Small museum but the veiled Christ alone is worth the visit. The preserved human circulatory systems downstairs are an odd complement, but interesting. Only requires 20-30 minutes to visit.
Its a little chapel with amazing sculptures of marble and two skeletons with veins, the anatomical machines. The the texture of the main sculptures, numbers 24, 11, 15, is incredible and is hard to believe that are built with marble. I recommend the visit.
