The Nuns' Choir and The Maria Cristina Hall
The yard of Santa Chiara was the first one in chronological order among those opened in Naples by Giotto, who had already carried out the paintings in the Basilica of San Francesco in Assisi, of the Franciscan churches in Rimini and Padua, as well as of Santa Croce in Florence, the most important Florentine church of the Order. Most of the frescoes were destroyed in 1604-1611. Only some evidence of the vast original cycle from Giotto’s workshop is preserved today in the choir of the Poor Clares, one of the most important monuments of Gothic architecture in Naples.
