  • Who visited Ravello, visited the Church and the Cathedral of Ravello. The unusually large bottom gradient from the altar to the exit is very interesting. Which was designed to better represent of the inside of the Church. Candle holders are so visible at an angle. Of course, the large pulpit with the unusual base and other is built in the laces. Note the lunch break, during which the Church is closed.

  • 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
  • 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.
  • Before you climb the steps you should know that there is moderate charge to go inside.
  • Ravello is one of the most fascinating Italian places around. Every alleyway you can admire a view different, a new panorama. Quaint place where it seems that time is unaffected, as if the clock stopped here. Must see!
