Church of San Ferdinando
The church of San Ferdinando was built between 1628 and 1660 together with the convent. It was paid for by a Grammar school, the Compagnia di Gesù. The designers were Giovanni Giacomo Conforto and Cosimo Fanzago. 19th Century restoration changed the facade. When the Jesuits were exiled from the Kingdom of Naples governed by Borbone, the church was given to the Constantinian Cavalry and was dedicated, by way of thanks to the saint from whom King Ferdinando I received his name. In the church, popular with the Neapolitans and very well-attended, until a few years ago, there were spectacular religious events during Holy Week - artists from the San Carlo theatre performed Pergolesi's Stabat Mater. The interior is a Latin Cross with a central nave and side chapels.
