Stunning!

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.

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

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
