The Cathedral of Naples (or Duomo) is dedicated to San Gennaro (St. Januarius), the city’‘s patron. The church houses a vial of the Saint’‘s blood that is brought out twice a year, on the first Saturday in May and 19 September, and usually liquefies. According to legend if the blood should fail to liquefy, then something bad will happen to Naples.
