Basilica di Francesco Di Paola, an amazing cathedral in Naples

When arriving at the Basilica, the sun was shining just above it but I really had to have a picture. The shot is not great but it is better than nothing. Inside the church there was a wedding celebration so we could not walk around. When you see the married couple sitting in the front you get an impression of the height of the cathedral. It is a young church from the end of the 19th century. In the middle of the atrium you find a hole like in the Pantheon of Rome.

Toen we aankwamen aan de Basiliek, stond de zon juist boven de koepel maar ik wou toch een foto trekken. Deze is niet perfect maar het is beter dan niets. Binnen in de kerk was er een trouw plechtigheid dus konden we niet rondwandelen. Als je kijkt naar het koppel zie je pas de enorme hoogte van de kathedraal. Het is nog een jong gebouw daterend van einde 19de eeuw. In het midden van het atrium vind je een opening zoals in het Pantheon te Rome..
