This church looks like it's from the medievel times. It houses several relics… Including the first bishop's bones and Saint Matthew's bones. Saint Matthew's bones are only available during certain times for viewing, unsure if there is a cost involved as it was closed when we arrived. From the court, You can see the Castle de Arechi all lit up... More

The Duomo was built by the Normans in the 12th century, but incorporating many later styles as southern Italy had been at a crossroad of many cultures. We saw a colonnaded and cobblestoned courtyard in Romanesque style with an Arabic-style fountain; the magnificent interior has gilded Rococo pieces, beautiful stained glass windows, well-crafted marble altar pieces and frescoes. The crypt... More

We found this building by accident as we were staying in pompeii and travelled to Salerno to catch the bus to Amalfi and Ravello. We caught the circumvesuviana train from Pompeii to Salerno, and the Duomo stop is the penultimate stop. However, we didn't realise this and jumped up and exited the train. Don't panic however, go under the subway... More

Amazing and beautiful. The mosaics and all of the tile work is stunning. The chapel in the basement should not be missed and is a masterpiece in itself.

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
