The High Altar was financed, as was the floor, by the Prince of San Nicandro, tutor to Ferdinand IV of Bourbon, King of Naples and Sicily and patron to many artists.

Each of the six side apses contains a smaller altar made of marble-effect hand-painted wood. The delicate flowers in the wooden vases on the altars are made of tiny pearls threaded on wire by the nuns.

The wooden statue of the Virgin, standing in a niche above the High Altar, is also much revered.
