    The Church is beautiful throughout your simplicity. I was going on a wedding when we visited and it was very beautiful!

  • 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.
