San Paolo Maggiore was built in the late 16th century on the ruins of a 9th century church, which was once site of a Roman Dioscuri temple. An impressive double staircase leads up to the entrance, designed by the architect Francesco Grimaldi, a master of Neapolitan Baroque. The interior is divided into a nave and two aisles and contains paintings by Massimo Stanzione, Paolo De Matteis and Francesco Solimena.

Sant'Anna dei Lombardi, Via Monteoliveto. Built in 1411, this church was completely restructured in the 17th century. It has been defined as a "museum of the Renaissance", due to the many beautiful sculptures it contains. Particularly noteworthy is a group of eight terracotta figures (originally painted) representing a Pieta' and modelled by Guido Mazzoni in 1492.
