The Cathedral, built during the 11th century, consists of three naves, separatred by two colonnades, each of which is formed by eight coloumns of granite, transept and crypt. The famous bronze doors, made by Barisano from Trani using the relief-techinque, were given to the Cathedral in 1179 by Sergio Muscettola, an important member of the Ravello patriciate. The ambo of Epistle (12th Century)is marked by bizantine decorations and is decorated by mosaics representing the Giona's story, a symbol of the Death and Resurrection of Christ. The pulpit made by Nicola di Bartolomeo from Foggia in 1272 is a present of Nicola Rufolo. It rests on six twist coloums adorned with mosaics; the backs of six lions are the base of these coloums. It's richly adorned with mosaic slabs representing geometrical, animal and plant decorations. Th marble chapel of St. Pantaleone, patron of Ravello, was built during the 17th century to preserve the precious relic of the patrons's blood. The miracle of liquefaction dates from 1057 in Constantinople.

"Average" sounds a bit meh. The next rating is "Very Good", and I feel that's overdoing it. "Good" would be about right. The Duomo is a fine building with some great carvings, and has a nice little museum which you can see for a few Euros, and if you like, get a discount ticket for several local sites of interest.

When we first visited the Cathedral it was in a very poor state of repair but over the years since it has slowly but surely been brought up to a very acceptable condition and I always pay it a visit although I am not of that religious persuasion. One of the reviews mentions the blood of Saint Pantaleone but I... More

The Cathedral is located adjacent the main piazza. A long flight of stairs ascends to the main entrance. The piazza affords excellent views of the countryside. The simple, white façade is reflective of the simplicity of the interior - plain white walls with wooden roof trusses exposed. Rows of simple, grey columns support the walls which divide the Nave from... More

We enjoyed visiting the duomo in Ravello. It has very unusual feature with a pair of pulpits across from each other in the middle of the church. One has mosaics with a whale swallowing Jonah. The other has the pulpit supported by columns on the backs of six lions. Also notice the bronze doors that are inside the church that... More

Ravello is really a very small village, inserted between the mountains but, at the same time, it's full of wonders, the cathedral is one of these, it is very small and simple but it is to visit.

Share this with me, would you? Sitting high in the mountains, ravello catches the warm breezes from the S-E that delivers the perfume of every native flower in the surrounding area. Positano is a half-hour drive down the coast, passing through bustling Amalfi and the gem of a perfect town, Atrani. Ravello not only occupies a magnificent open-air terrace by... More

In fairness, this would probably not be a must-see in Venice or Florence or Rome, but it IS amazing that a town this small was gifted with a cathedral, and it is a very pretty church with some very worthwhile treasures in it. Actually, part of its charm is that it does not overwhelm you like so many Italian churches.... More

The outside of this church is unassuming and a bit plain. The inside it quite pretty. It does not take long to go through and it is a bit sparse. I am a bit obsessed with lions so I will go just about anywhere that I know I can find them so for me this was worth it. Outside of... More
