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.

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

A must see if you are in Ravello, located in the central square, beautifull frescos. You often see wedding couples.

Beautiful duomo from 11th century. On display St. Pantaleone's holy blood (early Christian martyr; a physician beheaded for his religion during the reign of Diocletian). Please, examine the rare bronze door by da Trani completed around 1177.

A place well worth a visit, it looks out to the square and in the evening you feel you are sharing the space with the local community, there is a small Museum attached.

The church did not look like much from the outside, but inside the church was beautiful . We visited it in August and were there for various celebrations and festivals

Once again Ravello fails to charm. Worth a visit. The cafe in the square has a public toilet which you have to pay 50c for but it is clean. The cafe lattes are very nice. And the view always a delight
