Worship

The people of Naples are very religious and enjoy going to church on a regular basis.Naples is the seat of the Archidiocese, and the Catholic faith is highly important to the populace; there are hundreds of churches in the city.
The “Duomo” Cathedral of Naples is the city's main place of worship; each year on September 19, it hosts the miracle of San Gennaro, the city's patron saint. During the miracle, which thousands of Neapolitans flock to witness, the dried blood of Januarius is said to turn to liquid when brought close to holy relics said to be of his body: this is one of Naples' most important and longstanding religious traditions. San Gennaro is the most important of these, with the miraculous liquefying of his blood. However, the miracles associated with Saint Patrizia and her miracles and the cult of the dead are also important.
