Beautiful spot for quiet reflection

We came across this beautiful spot in the morning while exploring. It is a lovely spot to stop and enjoy the quiet. Also, quite a lovely place for photographers.

After Climbing the steps of the duomo in Amalfi take a left turn and follow the signs...a small entrance fee gains you admission to the cloister, the museum, the crypt,and finally exit through the cathedral -surprisingly - no gift shop.

These cloisters really are well named. A wonderful place to come and ponder awhile away from the heat, noise and bustle of Amalfi. They also teem with the history of this area. Well worth the 3 euros entrance fee.

This is part of the complex of the Dumo di Sant'Andrea Apostolo. Lovely architecture and a peaceful retreat from the bustling streets of Amalfi.

It amazes me a little (is such a combination possible?) that there are so few reviews of the original church of Amalfi, rooted in the 6th century with Moorish influences hinting at its host city state's long powerful arms and inside: its amazing contents including a thorny sideshow of supernatural possibilities, depending on which voices we give our attention in...

Part of the duomo cathedral tour so at €3 per person it can't be missed. 120 pillars with a garden in centre and a backdrop of the bell tower above - steeped in history. This so the first part of the cathedral tour the only thing off putting was noise from the school children visiting but obviously this can't be... More

You get to see this as a part of your paid ticket entrance to the Church. There is not that much to see but the architecture of the cloisters is pretty special as is the view of the church tower from the back of the cloisters

This was just a few Euro's but worth it. There is multiple sections to the attraction and you go at your own pace. They have a restroom but you need to ask for it. Even if you are not religious it is worth a look!

You have to pay 3€ to enter via the museum so if it just the church then avoid the pay entrance. We paid the museum has a few interesting relics and the crypt which quite stunning the statue of St Andrew is amazing. The cathedral is very tranquil and well worth spending a quite few moments in.
