Built in the 1100's this cathedral is exquisite. The marble work alone is very pretty and that's not mentioning the dozens of frescoes painted on the ceiling. You must make sure to go downstairs to St Matthews crypt. The paintings beautifully display Christ's ministry. Don't miss this!

The church and the crypt were very nice. We especially enjoyed the mosaics by the altar. We were the only ones visiting at the time. You get to the crypt by going down the stairs on the left side towards the front by the altar.

As far as beauty, this church is like every other one in Rome, for example. As far as religious significance, it's second-to-none! It holds the tomb of the Apostle and Evangelist St. Matthew (as in the Gospel of Matthew author). It also holds the tomb of Pope St. Gregory VII, widely considered to be one of the most influential popes,... More

We happened to visit it on the Feast Day of San Matteo, when everyone, churchgoer or not, visit it. An exceptional experience!

After all the cathedrals and churches in Rome, I felt desensitised to the beauty of yet another duomo. However, the exquisite fine mosaic work and simply stunning crypt belies belief. Very few tourists Makes the visit even more pleasant.. It's was well worth the look see.

Built over a Roman Temple that was built over a Greek Temple. The Archbishops of Salerno are buried beneath the church and it is a beautiful scavi there dating the 400 a.d.

Not many tourists when we went. It is a wonderful example of the architecture and style of the period. A good place to take a bit of time out to sit, look and ponder.

I wish we had more time to spend in this Duomo. It is unassuming from the outside but the inside is a different story. The beauty inside is so impressive. There were just a handful of people during the time that we visited this duomo. Salerno is not as famous as its neighbors like Amalfi and Capri but I really... More
