Type: Religious Sites, Historic Sites, Sights & Landmarks
Owner description: 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.

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

Loved this but did not realise the museums art hard to be paid for. The signs could be better but a stunning cathedral

For the past 14 years we have stayed in Ravello, in our opinion the best place in Italy and we always visit the Duomo. We have been lucky to see many weddings there and have enjoyed the music when mass is being taken. You can enjoy having refreshments in a nearby cafe and listen to the emotional music. The Duomo...

Very nice church - star of the show are the lions holding up the pulpit, each of which is full of character and very visibly endowed with genitalia. The mosaic of Jonah is also worth checking out.

This Church must have quite a reputation for its beauty and romantic setting. There seemed to be about 4 weddings each day while we were in Ravello. My husband went to Sunday Church Mass here and I joined him near the end. I got goose bumps listening to the choir and the organ music - the sound was incredible.

We stopped in for a few minutes because we bought a package of five sights that included the Duomo. Impressed that the pulpit was constructed in 1272.

Myself and Rose got married here in Aug 2014 with Don Giuseppe Imperato as our priest, all organised by Mario at Wagner Tours - the most spectacular day of our lives and thank you to everyone involved.
