Duomo - Naples, Italy
The Cathedral of Naples might not be as impressive as some in other Italian cities, but it merits a visit nonetheless. It was consecrated in 1315 and was built in the Gothic style. There have been several changes over the centuries and each part of the duomo is from a different era. The altar is said to contain the blood of the patron saint of Naples, St. Gennaro. Many believe that St. Gennaro might have been a Christian adaptation of the Roman God, Janus. The church contains two vials of the saint's blood, said to liquefy and boil three times annually (see Special Events).
