“Not the correct name but it is a magnificent church building”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2013

This is the Duomo di Sant' Andrea Apostolo. It is a magnificent church building in the town of Amalfi. It overlooks the Piazza Duomo in Amalfi. You walk up the street and go around the corner of a building and boom! there it is. See the reviews of the Duomo.

“Silence in the midst of commotion!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2013

The imposing staircase in the midst of a commotion filled piaza is a welcome break and gives the impression of quieter place beyond. The cathedral charges a small fee for the entrance, but its worth all of it. The interiors are peaceful and the facade with numerous columns is amazing.

“Wonderful collection of spaces, artifacts and experiences”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2013

One sees the imposing stairs to the Duomo first and then walks into courtyards and passage ways, chapels and crypts full of historical and religious artifacts. It's worth leaving the busy piazza behind you and venture into this amazing space.

“A beautiful, quiet cathedral in a beautiful setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2013

I don't know how busy the cathedral is in summer months, but as we went at end-of-season it was almost deserted, and very peaceful. (Amalfi is a bit off the beaten track, compared with the main Naples attractions such as Pompeii, Herculaneum and Vesuvius, and I assume most visitors go there, as we did, as part of the Amalfi Drive.) The stately duomo you see from the square conceals a wonderful mixture of styles - Moorish, Romanesque and Baroque.

We didn't see the miracle of the manna from the relics of St Andrew, but by sheer chance we were privileged to see something else memorable. in the Crypt, we witnessed a formal visit by a very old and frail Greek Orthodox bishop, making a pilgrimage to the tomb of his patron saint.

The three euros admission charge includes a good illustrated leaflet. This is just as well as, oddly, there isn't a guidebook on sale (never one there when you want one!)

“The highlight of Amalfi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

A imposing staircase leads up to this duomo, built circa 1000-1300, with its 1000 year old bronze doors that were made in Constantinople. Take the self-guided tour through the serene cloister with its 120 columns and a beautiful tiled bell tower. The basilica houses a museum filled with treasures, from chalices to bishops hats and jewelry to statues. Take a seat on one of the benches in the crypt of St. Andrew ... it really is beautiful! The interior of the Cathedral itself boasts a 13th century crucifix and Egyptian granite columns. There is a small fee to enter the church, but it is the highlight of Amalfi.
