Lonely Planet review

The undisputed star of Piazza del Plebiscito, Naples’ largest square, is the Chiesa di San Francesco di Paola , a later addition to the colonnade that formed the highlight of Joachim Murat’s original piazza (1809). A neoclassical copy of the Pantheon in Rome, the church was commissioned by Ferdinand I in 1817 to celebrate the restoration of his kingdom after the Napoleonic interlude.
