This basilica, one of the more important ones in Napoli, is just one of the many parts of a huge religious complex, Santa Chiara.  The inside was originally filled with beautiful Baroque styles and ornamentation as well as marble, however in WWII, a fire broke out and destroyed most of the church.  Only two or three of the original side chapels remain, including one dedicated to the Bourbons.  In fact, members of the Bourbon family are still buried there today.  (taken 4.10.2014)
