Overview

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.

It's a small town, so it makes sense that the duomo would pale in comparison to Florence, Milan, Siena etc. And it does. Worth a visit, but hardly breathtaking.

After 7 days exploring this coastline and having visited 10+ churches I can say this was one of the best. Totally beautiful.

Highlights for me were the brass panels on the main door, the fine 13th century pulpit with its beautiful animal and plant mosaics, and the modern sculpture of a green man in a loin cloth who looks as if he might be about to kneel...More

It is a very nice church to visit, but it isn't very large so a good time to visit is in the evening at aperitivo time

Called I just before the sacristan was closing the church for the night. While this church didn't have the attraction of multiple stained glass windows and grand statues, it had a peacefulness and simplicity which I appreciated.

Don't miss the Duomo di Ravello if you are nearby. It is a beautiful and sacred space that was calming to visit. We saw two brides in one day and both looked like they had a wonderful day and wedding.

Just keep going, tour the crypt, sanctuary everything. This place just keeps getting better the more time you spend.

Most of the Duomos in Italy are extremely ornate, this was the opposite. It was very beautiful and of course very peaceful. It really is well worth a visit

The interior of the Duomo is fairly simple but has some very unique and interesting mosaics. Worth a visit is you are in Ravello
