Also known as 'the Cathedral of the Amalfi'
For the entry fee of 3 Euro per person you get a very detailed multi-fold colour brochure with several pictures. There are four main areas which are:
- The Cloister of Paradise
- The Basilica of the Crucifix
- The Crypt of St Andrew
- The Cathedral
We were very taken with all areas, especially the Crypt.
It is open from 10am until 5pm daily, Cathedral only open from 7am til 10am for Prayer only

This church and it's convent are well worth seeking out. The convent garden is an architectural jewel that, even in the off season, is worth the entrance fee.

Amalfi is a picturesque little town that is nestled in a fold of land surrounded by some of the most picturesque views in Italy, if not in all of Europe. But as one walks through the twisting streets of small shops and enters the smallish central square, the sight of such a large and spledidly decorated church is indeed awe inspiring. The church towers over the square and forms one whole side of it. Inside are some of the best preserved and eye catching decorations in any church in Italy. It is another place that benefited from the generosity of generations of visiting Italian royalty and wealth,

Visited this ancient and very interesting place in October '12 in perfect weather. The cathedral is dedicated to Saint Andrew (Cattedrale di Sant'Andrea), which mortal remains were brought to Amalfi after the fourth crusade in 1206 - inside the Basilica you can step down into the crypt of Saint Andrew. This cathedral was build next to the old Basilica, which again was build on the ruins of previous temples. The influence of the Arabs can be seen in the architecture (the four small towers and in my opinion also inside the cloister garden).
The façade might seem fairly new, which is correct - it was build in 1891, when the old one collapsed.
There's a lot more to be said about this, but this is not a encyclopaedia - but a review. It's interesting to notice that our kids (girls 6 and 10) actually was taking in the church and the history to the degree they did - this should speak for it self.
The admission fee is only 3€ and the kids went in for free.
Do visit the place - it's worthwhile and it calms your mind after the hustle and bustle of Amalfi town.
If you come by car - do notice that finding parking is a nightmare - sometimes you can find lot owners at the harbour-side, letting out their spaces for approx. 5€ per hour.
There's a fine café with lovely pastries, chocolates, and cakes to the right of the stairs to the cathedral - it looks expensive, but everything inside is worth every cent.
