“St Andrew was here!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2014

it wasn't until I had climbed the steps and paid 3 Euros until I realised this was the actual/apparent resting place of St Andrew. As a Scot and graduate of St Andrews University I was both amazed and rather moved. It is a really impressive, peaceful building too.

“One of the twelve Apostles buried here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2014

San'Andrea is Saint Andrew, one of the 12 Apostles sent out by Christ to spread the word across the globe.
This is magnificent church in a small coastal town, and the dedication to God is tremendous.
The artwork is sublime and just being there over the remains of one of Christianity's most powerful figures is humbling.
Saint Andrew's church dominates the landscape in Amalfi and when you walk up the steps it's almost as though you're ascending to higher things.

“Total tranquility”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

This is a fascinating duomo built onto an earlier pagan temple. The atmosphere is uncannily peaceful. I liked the suggestion in the leaflet: "Sit silently and listen to IT".

“Beautiful Church”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

Probably common in small towns on the Mediterranian, a port and then an "inner square" a few steps away from the water, The square is very quaint and has cafe's and restaurants and shops that are all very nice, and then there are the church steps. I think the guide said 60 steps, you can take your time but it's worth it; a beautiful, picturesque church full of character. Off to the side are restrooms (decent, no charge) and an opportunity for a tour of some additional grounds, gardens, and chapels and underground areas. I think it was 3 or 4 euro's per person, well worth it. Back to the square, a wonderful outdoor cappuccino, some very nice shops; all the people in the shops, young and old, very nice, helpful but not overbearing. Some very nice items we treasure to this day...
