Duomo di Salerno, Salerno
(4.6/5 based on 1,100+ 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.

  • The Cathedral is dedicated to Saint Matthew, whose remains rest in beautiful crypt below the Church. Is this the most decorated in Baroque style. To see. Rest in this church the only Pope, Gregory VII, buried away from Rome.
