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.

Overlooking the main square, this historic church is worth a visit The church is quite plain looking and has an attractive bell tower. The bronze door is of interest. Inside, the most notable sight is the pulpit.

Not the biggest or the best but interesting nevertheless. Fantastic pulpit the like of which I'd not seen before. Fantastic carved doors at the entrance. Enjoyed my visit, along with the museum again which was only small but with some nice things to see.

This was our starting point in Ravello as it houses an interesting little museum with noteworthy pieces.I was amazed at how far everything dates back. The doors are also quite special. Lovely piazza outside. Go look for the gelato shop there, and try their pear and mascarpone flavor. Really, REALLY good!

We went to this church when we stopped in Ravello. We saw many churches on our trip and this was not the most beautiful, but it was still worth a look.

Compared to the stunning views outside this church is not a must to visit. If you have seen a handful of Italian churches this won't make a big difference. But as always in Italy the churches are fine places for resting, contemplating and enjoying silence, architecture and art. It's a whole different matter if you are religious i, but if... More

My wife and I were here on a guided tour with 34 others; we kinda wandered in by ourselves and able to see most of what this chapel had to offer. It is fine, some history and good art work. It was a good break from outside and before visiting some of the shops as well as look at the... More

Compared to all the numerous chapels to visit in Italy, this one is very unspectacular. Spend your time in Ravello visiting the villas. There you will be rewarded with the great views.
