Part of the complex of San Gregorio Armeno (see previous tip), the namesake church was rebuilt with the complex in 1572. It was the work of the two architects, Giovanni Vincenzo Della Monica and Giovan Battista Cavagna, but the interior received further renovations in the 17th century by the architect Dionisio Lazzari. A Renaissance style fašade with a Baroque portico leads into one of the most richly decorated interiors in Napoli. It is seen by some as barocco napoletano gone over the top, while others find as one of the finest examples. You be the judge.
