Medieval Church Dating to 1200

The Basilica Santuario del Carmine Maggiore was founded by Carmelite friars during the 13th century. However, some sources say they may have reached Naples from the Holy Land and the Crusades in the 8th century. The building of the church, however, likely started around the year 1200 and has been an important landmark for the city ever since.

Over the centuries, the church has been updated and renovated. Its façade, for example, dates to 1766. Visiting the church is important for religious pilgrims as well as anyone interested in medieval architecture.
