My bias is that I found a small hilltop town very quaint, serene and educational. The different cultures that existed over the millennia have a distinct character that has been retained. As you come up the steps to the main cathedral, the moment you sight...More

This Norman Cathadral still has Byzantine crypts. You enter at the lower level from the main piazza and walk directly into crypt chapels and reliquary. Then walk up the stairs onto the main church. It certainly takes your breath away. What seems a plain interior...More

In this tiny hill-top village, there is a magnificent cathedral on a majestic scale, with noble Roman columns reused as the arcade in the nave. It is a most impressive building with an interesting Treasury (2euros to visit) too.

Well worth a visit. The Norman cathedral is said to be the largest in Calabria but size was not the main attraction. Light and airy with delicate columns and arches in both the main cathedral and the crypt. The town itself had other interesting churches...More

The cathedral is mostly interesting because of its age and unusual design. When in Gerace you have to see it if only because it is the most important building in the town.

A beautiful example of southern Italian Romanesque architecture. It is a large church which incorporates classical remains in its columns and capitals. The crypt includes a display of important possessions of the church.

To find the words to express the the feeling of walking into the cathedral in Gerace is nearly impossible. A beautiful town perched on a mountaintop with an amazing view of the landscape and sea of Southern Italy. A stroll into the cathedral takes you...More
