Santa Maria Donnaregina Vecchia

Santa Maria Donnaregina Vecchia

Napoli - Churches

Rebuilt thanks to the generosity of Queen Mary of Hungary, the wife of Charles II of Anjou, King of Naples, the church is a gothic building with a single nave; in the entrance area there is a large nuns’ choir - who followed the Franciscan order – enlarged whilst work was in progress. In the middle of '600, with the construction of the church of Donnaregina Nuova, the fourteenth-century building was annexed to the cloister and the extensive cycle of paintings remained unknown until 1861, when the monastery was closed and it therefore became possible to once again admire the frescoes decorating the choir and nave
