Trip Planner: Europe / Italy / Campania / Province of Salerno / Amalfi Coast / Salerno / Duomo di Salerno
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.

This is an incredibly beautiful and characterful cathedral worth visiting if you’re in Salerno. It was a Sunday when we visited and the morning mass was finishing so we entered for free. The courtyard is picturesque with some old statues and the bell tower above. The inside of the cathedral is strikingly white with a painted dome which is quite a nice contrast. It’s filled with natural light so it’s worth a stop to spend some time.
I loved the mosaics so colorful and also being of primarily women. Mary and many angels which you typically don’t see at churches. Plus the geometric shapes on the alters. So great that they offer QR code to look up to get the background on what you are seeing. It was a really nice church.
Nice feeling. The cathedral is nice but the crypt is stunning. I could have stayed there forever. There was a service going on with singing when I went; it made it even better.
Be sure not to miss the cripta. It is extremely beautiful. The cathedral is understated and beautiful, but don't miss the cripta.
This was a little surprise! Beautiful and well worth the visit, the tomb of St Matthew made it that more special
