With the scent of cumin drifting in the air, we seek out the cathedral,begun in the 9th century and finished in the 12th century,with its Arab-Norman facade. Its the most reminiscent of Muslim Spain: four tiers of variously coloured arches like lace carved in stone. Sixty steps lead to the entrance. And here,too,is Africa; the Chiostro del Paradiso,a white washed... More

As we walked up the hill in Ravello I heard a beautiful soprano singing, I guess it was an irresistible impulse that led me into this beautiful church to listen and observe the marriage service for a few minutes, very glad I did. We met another couple and walked up the hill to a small park. All in all a... More

There are so many gorgeous churches in Italy that it is easy to get jaded. The art work here is beautiful and if you are in Ravello, it is worth a quick stop in to visit and maybe sit and reflect for a bit.

This Cathedral is worth a visit and opens late. We found it interesting and peaceful. It is very central.

Don't be mislead by the low ranking, which comes from fewer reviews than the businesses which ask their customers for ratings. This church is beautiful and well worth a visit for the beautiful interior, especially the mosaics.

This is a very pretty church right in the main square of Ravello. Definitely worth seeing. Beautifully decorated and really lovely. If you like old churches, you'll enjoy it. We were there early in the morning when the doors were open.
