The Cappella Pappacoda is owned by the Oriental Institute of the University of Naples and gets its name from the tombs of two aristocratic brothers: Bishop and Cardinal Pappacoda. The church was founded in the 15th century and the doorway retains the original late Gothic style. There’s also a campanile that is noted for its color contrasts created by the use of different materials.

The real treat here is searching for the hidden faces along the façade. Why was this pair stuck up on high and who were they? You can search for these hidden faces or ask the custodian of the church to point out these solemn figures.
