Duomo di Sant'Andrea, Amalfi

4.7
Must see · Religious Site · Church
Remodeled many times since the ninth century, Duomo di Sant'Andrea is home to the Crypt of St. Andrew. Two crosses--one a 13th-century wooden crucifix, the other mother of pearl brought from the Holy Land--represent two different periods in the cathedral's history. The bronze doors of the church were cast in the city of Constantinople before 1066, making them the city's earliest architectural feature of post-Roman manufacture. Visit the gardens, where arches, colonnades, and sculptures blend in with the colorful landscaping.

  • Away from the lemons and coast stands this highly impressive architectural feat. It dominates one of the main piazzas of Amalfi and the top of it can be seen from the coastline. Though we did not venture inside, the exterior architecture is impressive enough. Definitely stop there for a photo at the very least!
  • Beautiful church. Both in and out side. The priest is very nice and it is real pleasure to listen to him.
  • Very interesting cathedral. The best parts are in the museum, where you can see the layers of the building, where frescos and structures going back to the initial construction of the church have been preserved and hidden away under later renovation works. The crypt is also amazing and worth a visit.
  • A must see venue in the heart of the small town of Amalfi. The place boasts fine architectural features and can be visited in it's own right or by attending one of the concerts in the Summer. If you do opt for the latter be sure you take warm clothing as its degrees colder in there than out. If you're infirm then, sadly, it's not the place for you as there are a lot (60?) steps to negotiate in order to gain access. I would guess that a wheelchair is out of the equation as there is no suitable alternative level access.
  • Beautiful Cathedral and a beautiful square. Very majestic and grand. It is a must to see. But please remember to be respectful.
