The sober 16th-century palace of the Monte di Pietà hides one of Naples's art treasures: a perfectly preserved and richly decorated 16th-century chapel. Opening onto the palazzo's courtyard, the chapel is decorated by important artists of the 16th and 17th centuries. On either side of the door are two sculptures by Pietro Bernini, father of the famous Lorenzo. Inside the church, the ceiling bears a beautiful fresco depicting scenes from the life of Jesus by Belisario Corenzio. Farther on, you can visit the adjoining rooms, in particular the sacristy at the beginning, and the Sala delle Cantoniere at the end, perfectly preserved in 17th-century style, down to the furnishings and floors. Note: For a visit, you need to ask the custode (keeper), at the Pio Monte di Pietà.
