About
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.

Eventually nothing's worth the road to Ravello, but a bunch of tourist traps, old houses and tiny little alleys.
Ravello is a little village of a couple of houses clung on top of the hills off Amalfi coast which has most likely become famous just to drag tourist off the mainstream Positano, Amalfi, Praiano etc. Nothing to see, nothing to buy, but made in (anywhere but Italy) stuff and no spot for good food or anything typical.
Just avoid..so you'll spare to yourselves the annoying unpleasant attitude of bartenders and waiters/waitresses.

This Cathedral is probably one of the most amazing in all of Europe! Seriously. We mean it. No, really, it’s that good. The Cathedral has a charming little Moorish courtyard that reminded us of Morocco. Under the Cathedral is the real reason to visit – the crypt of St. Andrew. The original fisher of men (St. Andrew) is entombed here. And there are beautiful paintings and a ceiling that rivals the Sistine Chapel. This is well worth a visit!

There are no literature to let the visitors know of addition that were made later to this drab church. It is not as nice as other churches in this part of Europe.

Pretty plain outside view but pretty neat inside with the mosaics. It’s free and won’t take long to wander in and take a look.

11th October 2019. Pre-Covid! We went to a free organ recital in the evening - just wander in and out when you wish. Hopefully this will be back "on the menu" once Covid is out of the way, or at least we are living with it if it has not gone completely. Pieces by Bach, Liszt, Franck. Organist was Luca Scandali - excellent. The doors were left open so that peole could just come and go - such a lovely relaxed way to spend a half hour or so in the evening in this gorgeous spot.

This beautiful church in the center of wonderful Ravello is worth a visit. It's not the typical church you see throughout Italy and Europe. The mosaic pulpit alone is worth your time.

It’s 3€ to get in but it’s quite a sight with a lot of history. Most descriptions are in Italian though and no audio guide was available. You start in the basement and then work up to the sanctuary. It’s breathtaking but a lot of steps for those with limited mobility. Amazing architecture with plenty of places to eat or drink just outside the church. Recommended if you enjoy touring these old Duomos

The church & museum were lovely. Don't forget to go downstairs
to the museum with some perfect pieces.

In the middle of Ravello main square. If it is good enough for Jackie O. it's good enough for all who came all the way up to Ravello.

Compared to all the numerous chapels to visit in Italy, this one is very unspectacular. Spend your time in Ravello visiting the villas. There you will be rewarded with the great views.
