You have to go in the Museum of the Treasure of St. Januarius that is more precious than Queen Elizabeth’s treasure. The treasure of St. Januarius has been saved by the Deputation for many centuries.

The Chapel of Neapolitan people

It is in the cathedral but it does not belong to the Church. The Royal chapel is independent. There are many paintings, silver busts, the relics of the Saint patron of the town and it is a baroque masterpiece. Besides, it has a wonderful acoustics and it was the second conservatory in Naples. Unmissable.

St. Januarius and his miracle

St. Januarius is a special saint because , for Neapolitan people, he represents the hope, the devotion, the intimacy, the power and popular pride. Every year, the three dates of his miracle are inexplicable and also his history is mysterious and fascinating.

DO YOU KNOW THAT…?

Well I'm suspicious to say something about the cathedral of the saint that my name and my history came from. Putting the emotions beside, I really get impressed by the conservation of the images walls and the whole cathedral. Its seems like it was made not so long time ago and this makes you feel like been part of that. Enjoy the experience because it's very pure.

Small museum which is dimly lit but to great effect as this highlights the shine of the amazing treasures found here. Cheap entry around €6, quiet early in the day.

Quando tornò a governare la città di Napoli, re Ferdinando IV ordinò alla Deputazione di vendere l’ostensorio donato da Gioacchino Murat. La direttiva però non fu mai eseguita ed oggi è possibile ammirarlo tra le Dieci Meraviglie del Museo.
Nel particolare della sfera, al centro dell’ostensorio, sono incisi alcuni segni zodiacali come l’Acquario, i Pesci, il Capricorno, il Leone e altri simboli delle stelle

Nonostante le poche informazioni si narra che nel 1933 Maria Josè di Savoia, durante una visita a San Gennaro, rimase così affascinata dalla bellezza della collana da scegliere un prezioso anello con diamante che aveva al dito e donarlo al Santo.

Mentre ovunque Napoleone portò via le più belle opere d’arte per trasferirle in Francia, a Napoli il condottiero consigliò al cognato Gioacchino Murat di rendere omaggio a San Gennaro donando un prezioso ostensorio in argento dorato e gemme.

L’ostensorio è suddiviso in tre parti: piede, fusto e raggiera.
Nella raggiera il movimento delle fiamme viene illuminato dai coridoni varietà rubino che simulano i grappoli d’uva. Ogni gemma ha una tonalità diversa, variando dal rosso violaceo al rosa intenso.
