We visited Salerno briefly on the last day of our stay on the Amalfi coast as part of a final road trip. So glad we did - saw many churches throughout our stay but this one was truly phenomenal. Stunning - well worth a visit.

Don't miss the crypt, it's a hidden gem. We were impressed by the church itself and then our eldest son asked us had wee been down to the crypt. So glad he asked! Amazing murals all over the walls and ceilings!

A little difficult to find but well worth the trip. The mosaics in the apses were fantastic. Didn't know about the crypt so missed out on that

Although the Cathedral of St Matthew is lovely, the best thing about it is the stunning crypt, where lie the mortal remains of the saint himself. Unfortunately, no photos allowed.

Wonderment with the bronze of St Thomas! Please note there are stairs going down from the Cathedral to this location! A bit dark in the natural lighting as well. A sight to see - the walls are filled with designs.
