  • Bellissimo il panorama. Beautiful gardens and statues. Though 7 euro per person seem excessive.

  • Magnificent the square that acts as a stage. Pity that the latter has been redone and debased by inconsiderate eighteenth and subsequent that have altered the original structure of the 12th century. Beautiful bronze Central doors by Barisano da Trani composed of 54 panels with sanjti and stories of the passion. The Interior, turned upside down by the restorations authentic gems of the past, two crooks facing each other in the middle of the nave, the Ambo and pulpit. Are the rare testimonies of medieval church and are enriched by mosaics, inscriptions, reliefs, Zoomorphic figures. Interesting is the chapel dedicated to San Pantaleone, the patron saint of Ravello and to whom the Cathedral is dedicated, which preserves above the altar the precious relic of her blood collected in a cup that traditionally every July 27 to change color and become opaque Ruby red.

  • Ravello's duomo a bud but you must know how to find out. The portal, the Ambo and pulpit are awesome!

  • Really lovely place, situated in a great square with lots to do, see and eat! The lemon Sorbets here are fantastic!
  • A rather simple church which has suffered lots of modifications during the years. Nothing "must see" here
  • The least impressive Duomo on the Amalfi coast, surrounded by tourist - trap restaurants, skip this one, no regrets.
  • Relatively plain interior, but that just highlights the glory of the decorated pulpit and ambo. One of these was created in 13C by Nicolò di Bartolomeo and is a riot of surface decoration and sculpture; the other - more restrained - provides the story of Jonah and the sea monster (the original version, before it was transmuted to a whale). If you get a chance, do visit the Duomo museum next door - it's a small space, but contains some gems. The front door is also worth a look - bronze, from the 12C.
  • The Duomo in Ravello is a moderate sized church with some fantastic mosaic lecterns, one of which features Jonah and the whale. There is also a relic of holy blood behind the altar. The doors are currently undergoing renovation.
