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.

We visited this church briefly as we searched for a quite place amongst the hillside. A case for taking it in, relaxing and getting a sense of history.

This church really does benefit from putting down the camera and simply looking at what there is to see

Step inside and see why people travel across the earth to be married here - stunning. Don't forget to visit the small museum to the left as you walk in.

The cathedral of Ravello is dedicated to St. Mary of the Assumption and faces the piazza of Ravello. It is not a church that will wow you comparied to others but if in Ravello worth seeing.

None of the excessive Baroque here. You can buy a combined entry ticket. However, if you are looking for excessive decoration typical of some medieval and Baroque churches, you'd be better off spending your money on the cathedral in Amalfi, which is the most stunning on the entire coast. Since Ravello's "discovery" in all the guidebooks, the prices are expensive... More

We were in Ravello for an evening concert and had arrived early. It was a chilly, rainy afternoon and after some warming coffee, a quick visit to the duoma was just what I needed. It's a lovely, small church with an interesting two story pulpit that was new to me. There is a museum off to the side, if you... More

I walked there from my hotel. The Duomo was quiet, in the nature of an Italian church. Sitting will take you back a few hundred years -- for a few moments.

At times during the day, the front door is closed, as it was when I attempted to visit the Duomo. I was directed to the side entrance on Via Wagner, where there was an entrance through a small museum. As a Catholic, I never like to see a charge for entering a church – it goes against our convictions. This... More
