This hidden gem deserves a wider "audience" of tourists because of its outstanding combination of the simple (the Campanile - or bell tower - built by the Normans in the 12th Century) surrounding a colonnaded and cobblestoned courtyard in Romanesque style with Arabic-style fountain, leading to the magnificent interior, replete with gilded Rococo masterpieces, fabulous stained glass windows, superbly-crafted marble...

The cathedral of Salerno, in the centre of the historic old town, an easy walk from the busy commercial and retail centre is well worth a visit. The atmospheric courtyard greets you as you approach. The bell tower is an icon of Salerno. You must descend to the truly amazing crypt of San Mattro. It is truly wonderful. An unforgettable... More

A must-see in Salerno, the exterior is medieval but the interior is very Baroque (common in the region). Love the lions at the front and the interior bronze door! Clearly it is one of the showpieces in Salerno but it is also well used by the public, and is in a cute little old piazza.

beautiful and uncrowded the outer courtyard is very interesting, We were there for the Festa di San Mateo and that is worth the trip to Salerno alone.

The Duomo in Salerno is a fine medieval cathedral. While the main floor has its charms, for us the most important reason to visit was to see the tomb of St. Matthew the Apostle and Evangelist. On a weekday afternoon it was nearly deserted (one woman was there reading Matthew's entire gospel before the tomb). The tomb was intricate and... More

To be honest, I was initially disappointed when I entered. The exterior pales in comparison to the Duomos in Milan, Florence and Siena, and the interior is stark white. The most notable aspects of the interior are the pulpits and the mosaics in the apses at the end of the center and right naves - the mosaics are quite beautiful... More

The duomo is similar to many churches on this coast although it has one or two features of note, particularly a fine entrance courtyard or atrium with old stone columns of different colours and fine eleventh century bronze doors, although not as good as those in Amalfi. Inside there are some nice mosaics and historical chapels and relics of Pope... More

Almost disappointing from the outside. Then the courtyard intrigues you. Deeper is the inner cathedral. And further in is the crypt. So glad it survived all the bombing during WWII.
