This spot focus on the interiors of the Church of San Gennaro (Saint Januarius). The church was built in august 1589 on an existing structure dating back to 1200 and untill 1572 was the property of the Corsario family who were noblemen from Amalfi.
The Parish Church of Vettica Maggiore is dedicated to St Gennaro: the Neapolitan bishop of Benevento, who died martyr in Pozzuoli on September the 19th 305
The structure is flanked by a bell tower with a cupola covered in majolica tiles.
The sacred building, in Renaissance style, is composed of three naves in Latin cross. The dome is oval, majolica polychrome and, inside the right nave, the altars of the Rosary, the Holy Family and the Immaculate wind. Always on the same side, there are the Sacred Heart Chapel, Saint Bartholomew altar and the Annunciation altar.
Instead, inside the left nave, there are the altars of the Carmine, Saint Januarius, Saint Lucy and the Crucifix.
