Have you ever seen many diamonds, rubies and emeralds?

Do you believe that a jewels was so precious to save the life of a king?

Do you know that pairs of earrings are the symbol against the plague? Would you feel protected by 54 Saints?

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.


Visiting Naples means visiting San Gennaro

Discover a city means discover its history and know its illustriousness.

The legacy left by the Patron Saint of Naples is incredible. History and legend, devotion and art come together in a truly unique form of alchemy. The Museum of the Treasure of St. Januarius allows to enter in Neapolitan culture recalling the milestones of a Country, from monarchy and foreign domination to unification of Italy.

Everyone offered something to St. Januarius and this tradition is still today thanks to your visits and your enthusiasm during our guided tours.

To all of you, Italian and citizens of the world, THANK YOU for choosing us.

Januario Gagliardi


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.

Simply unbelivable. None knows about this and a vist to Naples should be whorth Just for this. I am Sorry for our beloved Queen,She can't have those jewels.

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.

I'm a local, living in a little town distant a few km from Naples and this Musem. I'm 44 years old and i did feel ashamed for viewing such a beauty only after so much time. The treasure kept in this Museum is amazing and San Gennaro is one of the most iconic figure of Naples. After my visit i started to understand better why. I suggest to visit the museum with a guide, for me made a huge difference. Without a guide, may be you don't fully understand the meaning of the exposed masterpieces that melt with the mystery and glory of this Saint.

La parte centrale dell’Ostensorio donato da Gioacchino Murat nel 1808 è sorretta da due angeli che poggiano sulla sfera. I due angeli tengono tra le braccia un cuore avvolto da una corona di spine. La fiamma in cima al cuore nasconde abilmente l’aggancio alla raggiera.
