  • Each Cathedral has its own story, really nice and big, the fact that it is built on a slight climb gives him an extra feature
    View original
  • The Cathedral represents the crowning of the beautiful day exploring, in the morning, the two charming villa Cimbrone and villa Rufolo from whose terraces there is a wonderful panorama on the Gulf Coast. The Cathedral of against satisfies the desire with its small and great historical-artistic treasures. Roman ruins in the jambs and lintels of the façade; bronze door of 1179, a masterpiece by Barisano da Trani (80 bronze panels in bas-relief); inside the lectern the epistle dual scale (only in Campania XI sec) with mosaics in the barriers, protruding lettorino and peacocks marquetry; the heavenly pulpit in rectangular case supported by six columns on lions and plastics capitals of 1270. Various relics of Saints.

  • This church is relatively plain compared to other similar churches in Italy but there are some interesting stone pulpits and altar. Love Ravello and the Duomo is worth a quick look.

  • 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.
  • Muy buena stadia maiori Italy, 2 years ago
  • Before you climb the steps you should know that there is moderate charge to go inside.
  • 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.
