    Beautiful ceilings & nativity scene
    My husband and I visited the cathedral once which we enjoyed, it's on the right near the top of the Corso Italia, before Piazza Tasso, the outside of the church is quite plain but the inside is beautiful, with ornate painted ceilings. As you go in, on the left hand side, behind glass there's an amazing nativity scene which is very detailed & interesting to see. Not a massive cathedral but a calm & beautiful place.

    Amazing Nativity Scene
    I entered this cathedral with my family on our first full day in Sorrento, while on a walking tour with Jet2. The Nativity scene was a real stand out feature, and the views inside definitely made up for the less than remarkable exterior of the building. Worth a visit.

    Attractive small cathedral
    The pretty unremarkable exterior and location of this cathedral leads in to an attractive and calm interior. The wall details are lovely, the side chapels typically Italian. The special bit is the large nativity scene just by the door!

Walking around the town we went into the Cattedrale for a quick look round. Lots to see and fantastic paintings and colours. Artefacts show that this is a wealthy area in Italy and good to look at.

Cathedrals often reflect the local area and the Cathedral in Sorrento is filled with beautiful woodwork. Local craftsmen must have been skilled in wood inlay as there is as much here as we have ever seen. Do not be fooled by the fairly plain exterior, like the town itself you see something from the outside but really have to go inside to fully appreciate it. The stained glass window over the alter brings in sunlight warming the look of the beautiful interior. Any trip to Sorrento must include a visit to this Cathedral.

Absolutely loved Sorrento Cathedral. Typically Italian, it looks nothing from outside but inside I found it totally inspiring. Lots of side alters, each with different stories & prayers. Fabulous examples of the local inlaid wood in both modern & classical styles. Definitely worth a peak!

When you go to Italy, sometimes you get domo’d out however this church in Sorrento is unique with beautiful altar and nativity scene.

We were just strolling around Sorrento and stuck our heads in for a quick peek. While it looks quite plain on the outside the inside is much different. We found some beautiful religious artwork and decorative timber pieces. Well worth a look.

I especially enjoyed looking at the numerous inlaid wooden pictures that are throughout the cathedral. This is a local skill and very beautiful to see the detail within each picture. When we were there they had a very elaborate and extensive nativity display up. I enjoyed looking at the various characters and the expressions they had on their faces.

Very plain exterior, so the interior was a "Wow" Very ornate, with a wonderful decorated ceiling. We went on Christmas morning - there was a service in progress, but no-one stopped us from joining the congregation - a lovely atmosphere.
