  • I already knew the Cathedral but I never visited with leader Mr. Dino, ask him if you happen to be going over there (just ask the Pro loco of Policastro) The Cattedlale was built on the ruins of a pagan temple. There are many "recycle" columns and bricks of various centuries. On the entrance door there is a Madonna and child, where we see the transition between paganism and Catholicism, in fact the child is at the center of the knees of the mother and not right as in the Catholic religion, nor left as in paganism. This is just one of the nice things about the Cathedral. Apse of the altar is placed on a mezzanine above the crypt, in the center of the altar a painting of the SS Assunta. The choir is a circular shape with a lift (now closed) for the priests from the seminary entered directly into the Church without being seen. I think you should go visit and see the beauty of the ceiling of the floor of the crypt and more.

  • This is a Romanesque cathedral and on the portal is depicted the Virgin enthroned with child surrounded by two Angels; in hitting the ceiling of the nave to be discovered, on the sides there are sculptures and a sarcophagus of Sheila GABA or the chapel of adoration the curious thing is that at the end to go to the altar there and to see the crypt (6th century Byzantine Church) you have to go down. The Tomb consists of 14 marble columns that support the roofing system sometimes crossed, there is also the Tomb as well as a large painting of Cardinal Pandya checè was Archbishop of Policastro as well as a statue of the Virgin Mary next to the crucifix

  • Konkafedral′nyj Cathedral Policastro goes back to legendary times of the Norman Conquest of southern Italy. In form it is a classic Romanesque Basilica with an apse and Bell-Tower. The portal is decorated with Romanesque marble lions and bas-relief of the Renaissance. Inside the baroque interior is average with occasional remnants of Renaissance decoration, plus an ancient crypt of the times of Robert Guiscard.
