Palazzo Reale-Naples

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

The Royal Palace in Naples is one of the four residences used by the Bourbon Kings during their 18th and 19th century rule. Today, however, what we see is the result of numerous additions and changes, including some post-World War II restoration to repair bomb damage.

A series of statues along the western façade depicts the rulers of dynasties who ruled Naples since the twelfth century. The palace and grounds house the Teatro di San Carlo opera house,  as well as a museum showing furniture, porcelain and pictures, and a number of city offices.
