We had a visit to salerno as part of our cruise. we researched its history from ancient times up to the significant role it played in WW2. as such we had a list of places to see while there and this was at the top of our list. Because we organised our visits for ourselves without an excursion, we found... More

The entrance full with arcs and the look remind south Spain with the muslems decors. The place looks very nice and impressive, small town with such a huge church.... This is must and it in the way to a terrific hanging out in a beautiful city sorrento. Enjoy....

So glad we decided to take a look. We were not inclined to look at "one more church in Italy". Thankfully, we stepped into the courtyard of the Duomo and decided to take a quick peek inside which turned into an amazing 30 minutes of checking out every corner including the Crypt of St Mathew. This church is so different... More

What an amazing place with such a rich history, especially in the central mosaics, worthwhile studying them and see the context of the various players in history

Very old Cathedral (Duomo) about 1000 years old. It has some interesting Islamic inspired architecture, enormous bronze doors, lots of mosaics and tiles and a 183 ft bell tower. However the part not to miss is the Crypt with the remains of St Matthew. The roof and walls are covered with paintings. It is not dark and dingy as many... More

We were walking by the Duomo in Salerno and decided to stop in. We were quite surprised by the beauty of the church and especially fascinated by the crypt below. They request a euro to go into the crypt (on the honor system as there is no attendant) and it is well worth it. We were the only people in... More

I find it strange that very few people realize that the relics of St. Matthew are housed in a crypt in this Duomo. The crypt is beautiful beyond description. This is a "must see" when you are in Salerno.

Even if you are not religious, the cathedral, cloister, crypt and treasury are well worth a visit. Although the buildings have been "renovated" through the centuries, parts are very old indeed.

Please don't walk past this church thinking that they're all the same. Apart from the beautiful interior, you absolutely must go down to the crypt because the beauty you will find there will take your breath away.

We arrived on the Day of San Matteo (St Mathews Day) the patron saint of Salerno so they had all the pomp and ceremony flying around! The cathedral itself is beautifully decorated in the main area, as you would expect the feeling of the place represents that of most other Duomo's. The crypt is amazing! The remains of the Saints...
