Naples: San Gennaro

The Chapel of San Gennaro, Naples Cathedral

I didn't realize that photography was prohibited in this chapel until alerted by a cathedral security guard. It is a sacred place dedicated to San Gennaro, the liquefaction of whose blood is an anxiously anticipated omen that Vesuvius will spare the city for another year.
