Duomo di Salerno, Salerno

(4.6/5 based on 1,200+ reviews on the web)
Duomo di Salerno, the main church of Salerno, contains the crypt that holds the remains of St. Matthew. The church was built over an earlier church, which was in turn built on Roman ruins. Behind the deceptively simple façade of the cathedral lies an ornate crypt, displays of golden altarpieces, tile mosaics, and the tomb of Pope Gregory VII. From the outside, admire the bronze Byzantine-style doors from Constantinople. The 12th-century Arabic-Norman bell tower stands watch at 56 m (184 ft) high.

  • Is the beating heart of the town of Salerno: a marvel in terms of both religious and artistic! St. Matthew couldn't have better burial will be enchanted especially from the crypt
