I stopped here a few weeks ago during my 2 week stay in Italy in which I visited all of the tombs of the apostles. Finding this cathedral was not easy, parking was difficult and it was not at the location that my iphone gps said it should be. I had to walk a couple of blocks east into town... More

It is a hugely refined cathedral in Romanesque architecture dedicated to Saint Matthew, whose relics are inside the - wonderful - crypt. It is just in the middle of Salerno - The main city (County Town) between the marvellous Amalfi Coast and the pristine Cilento Coast - old town centre which is a well preserved medieval town on the sea...

The Steps outside gives it a grand feeling. The Church is quite beautiful from outside and inside. It showcases the magnificent art and craftsmanship of that time. Must see!

It is really a hidden gem, a little bit difficult to find. Was opened in 10th century and it is dedicated to St Mathew whose relics are inside the crypt.It has lots of things to see and the indoors are as amazing as the outdoors.

As a student of art history, this was a "do-not-miss". The Romanesque exterior with its cloisters and 12th c. bell tower is beautifully preserved. The entranceway features a bronze door commissioned from Constantinople in 1099, and a pair of stylized Byzantine stone lions. The interior reveals a heavy Norman influence (similar to churches from this era in Sicily) in the... More

A little difficult to find, located in the old city. Lots of interesting things to see both in the church and in the courtyard.

Because we organised our visits for ourselves without an excursion, we found... More
