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.

This is a place for weddings, both local and from elswhere (e.g. from as far as Japan). So if you want to get married in Ravello do it here!!! You will be applauded by all the well-heeled drinkers on the main square in front of the chuirch.

Located next to the main square in Ravello, the Duomo is a small but nice church, built in Romanesque and Baroque styles. The interior has many nice sculptures and work arts. The church is small enough. It has also a very old tower. At noon the church is closed for some time, so visitors who want to visit Duomo need... More

Check out the doors on the way in. Masterfully made. The floor slopes toward the altar to bring parishioners closer to God. Relics of two Saints on display here; St. Barbara & St. Giovanni Damasceno. The Blood of St. Pantalone, Principal Patron of Ravello is preserved in the Blessed Sacrament Chapel. Small museum located which houses artifacts from previous churches... More

Any Italian cathedral is worth visiting, but the cathedral in Ravello is compact and small, and an enjoyable visit. While not particularly noteworthy for its art, it sits in the middle of a most attractive town, and is part of the history of this fine place.

There are more stunning churches in the area but the pulpit and marble lions here are worth seeing for the craftsmanship and the feel good they impart to the whole building.Somehow this typifies the vivaciousness of the village. This is a lively and active part of the community and that is evident as you wander round. A very uplifting space.

We were surprised that the Duomo doesn't get more press as a must see. The bronze doors from the 13th century are extraordinary and so are the mosaic-laden Rambo and pulpit. We loved the mosaic depictions of Jonah being swallowed by the whale.

As cathedrals go this is a small one - its on the main square in Ravello so just pop in and have a look.
