Vibrant frescoes adorn the bright and airy rotunda of Naples Cathedral. Originally painted in the 14th century , the amazing masterpieces still shine brightly. Also housed in the Cathedral, the Cattedrale di San Gennaro to Italians, is a vial of blood said to belong to Saint Januarius. The vial is brought out twice a year on the first Saturday in May and on September 19th to observe the miracle of liquification; it’s said that if the blood fails to return to a fluid state that disaster will befall the city.
