saint joseph

The Church of St. Joseph, today Sanctuary, is located in Marina Chiaiolella, in Giovanni da Procida Street.

It was built during the nineteenth century and it has a good position, near the port and the neighbourhood.

In fact, it is visible from every perspective, thanks to the dome and the bell tower with the clock, built in the nineteenth century.

The shape is a Latin cross with only one nave, along whose perimeter small side chapels open.

On the bottom stands the main altar, surmounted by a marble aedicule containing the wooden statue of St. Joseph of the eighteenth century and a shell on the top, with the inscription: "ITE AD JOSEPH".
