The small Church of St. Philip Blacks in Salerno could fall in the number of walks of Salerno to see , if only it were left to itself for years. It is a Renaissance church, located in the district Sant'Eremita the historic center of Salerno. It is located just below the convent of St. Nicholas of Palma and San Lorenzo. The Church of St. Philip Blacks in Salerno was built in the late 16th century and entrusted to the Capuchin Fathers and was dedicated to the Holy Cross. In 1761 the Congregation of the Immaculate Conception of Mary Most Holy and of St. Philip Blacks acquired the chapel. Its plan, as few churches in Campania, is octagonal. The interior is exquisite with nineteenth-century stucco and frescoes depicting the life of St. Philip Blacks. There is also the statue of the saint in 1778 by the sculptor Giuseppe Manzo. On the altar is a painting of angels under the cross of Christ. Today the church, in spite of static consolidation works by the Superintendency in 2010 is completely abandoned.
