    Description :

    “Built between 1294 and 1323, the Duomo of San Gennaro lies behind a mostly 19th-century façade. The nave is lined with ancient columns, and there is an array of monuments to past rulers, along with paintings by Lanfranco and Domenichino. The Duomo houses the relics of San Gennaro, patron saint of Naples (martyred AD 305). The ornate Cappella San Gennaro holds his head, within a silver-gilt bust, and phials of his congealed blood, which miraculously liquefies three times a year (on the first Sunday in May, 19 Sep and 16 Dec). According to tradition, if the blood should fail to liquefy, the city will have bad luck. The Cappella Carafa, a Renaissance masterpiece built from 1497 to 1506, contains the saint’s tomb.”
