The Cathedral, built during the 11th century, consists of three naves, separatred by two colonnades, each of which is formed by eight coloumns of granite, transept and crypt. The famous bronze doors, made by Barisano from Trani using the relief-techinque, were given to the Cathedral in 1179 by Sergio Muscettola, an important member of the Ravello patriciate. The ambo of Epistle (12th Century)is marked by bizantine decorations and is decorated by mosaics representing the Giona's story, a symbol of the Death and Resurrection of Christ. The pulpit made by Nicola di Bartolomeo from Foggia in 1272 is a present of Nicola Rufolo. It rests on six twist coloums adorned with mosaics; the backs of six lions are the base of these coloums. It's richly adorned with mosaic slabs representing geometrical, animal and plant decorations. Th marble chapel of St. Pantaleone, patron of Ravello, was built during the 17th century to preserve the precious relic of the patrons's blood. The miracle of liquefaction dates from 1057 in Constantinople.

If you really love seeing the inside of churches then go ahead and spend the 3 euros. It's nice but nothing extraordinary. The outside and setting held the most interest for me.

This church was simpler than most I've seen in Italy, but beautiful nonetheless. It's history is evident when you sit and pray there. I can just imagine years ago.......attending mass there and praying for the safety of my family.

This is a pretty church. The most interesting things to note in here are the tile mosaics of Jonah and the Whale, and the marble lions which support the pulpit. There is an interesting architectural mix of baroque and Romanesque styles.

Nice duomo, but toured on our own so maybe didn't get everything. Loved Ravello in general but no one thing knocked my socks off.

Nothing spectacular, but on the piazzo in Ravello so we walked inside. Nice bell tower. It only took my friend 10 minutes to view. She was not overly excited. Not much to say- the gelato in the piazza was delicious, tho.

Ravello is a must see on the Amalfi coast and the square is delightful. The church is beautiful and well worth a visit if you tie it in with a drink in the square.

As with all Italian towns the duomo is the center of the square. In Ravello the church is situated above a lovely set of steps. The interior is paler in color (pink and ivory) and has magnificent ceramic tiles decorating the pulpits. We were especially pleased to see real candles to light for the saints as we make a point...

2 things I liked the most were the bronze entry doors dating from 1179 and the pulpit with 6 twisting columns set on marbles lions. Other parts of the church were fairly ordinary. On your right as you enter the main square.

We visited this church ( Duomo) whilst in Ravello. It dominates the town square. Whilst there it was the scene for several weddings which guests appeared to enjoy attending. There are great photo opportunities both inside and outside this church. We also sat in the surrounding cafes and listened to church music which was very pleasant. Worth a visit for... More
