March 27 – Cathedral of St John the Baptist

Naples is ‘busy’, some say chaotic, but people know what they’re doing – they just do it faster and closer together. I’ll post some videos later to show what I mean. In the meantime, I went to the main cathedral, the Duoma, officially known as the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist and the seat of the Archbishop of Turin. Spectacular. The Turin Shroud is somewhere in there, but I didn’t see it. Like in many of the lesser churches, there are confessional booths which are often occupied. From what I’m learning about the local mafia, I’m not surprised.
