Pretty typical cathedral. Don’t be surprised that the outside is fairly plain but pretty neat inside. It s free to visit so pop in for a quick look

This cathedral is dedicated to Saints Philip and James. It is located on the Corso Italia pedestrian street. Surprisingly, its entrance, not its apse is facing east! The church was built in the XI. century and completely rebuilt in 1573, to repair the damages caused by the invasion of the Turks. In 1924 the facade was once again rebuilt.

Although there was an ongoing vespers mass, we still decided to went in because we wanted to see the interior of this church where Torquato Tasso was baptized. We remained close to the entrance. The interior is splendidly decorated in Baroque style. Between the nave and the aisles, there are six pairs of arches, the columns are decorated with inlaid marble. The ceiling has Baroque style paintings.

We realized that we joined the mass near its end. After the Pater Noster, according to the Catholic tradition, we exchanged handshakes with the other believers in our vicinity. It was an uplifting experience!

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.

Apparently this is the main Cathedral of Sorrento. Very unique architecture and design inside. A must see when in Sorrento. Free entry

This is a beautiful cathedral and doesnt look much from the outside but definately worth going inside and having a look at the beautiful interior. The minature scenes of models are something that seem to be done around this area and they are quite stunning.

Visited as part of a tour of Sorrento and wasn't disappointed. It looked quite underwhelming at first as it is not a overly ornate building but the interior is lovely. Not that easy to get around in some parts, when busy, but very enjoyable to view finished off with a very delightful nativity display on exit

We were lucky to be on a pilgrimage and had Mass one evening. The interior of this cathedral is amazing with so many beautiful treasures. Definitely a church to be seen

I bit plain from the outside, but impressive on the inside. Fairly typical, we always visit cathedrals but to be honest, they all look
much the same to me.

If in Sorrento you must visit the hidden gem. Beautiful statues and alters, well cared for and free to go in. Lit a few candles on my way round for donations placed in the box, a lovely experience.

Sunday 6th October 2019. If in Sorrento it's certainly worth visiting (and it's free which makes a change for attractions in this area!). Square rather than the usual round columns inside. Very ornate with masses of marble and gilt, and a very impressive nativity scene at the entrance - don't miss that.
