Owner description: 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.

Reviewed 21 June 2014

A fascinating building, full of historical and cultural interest, notably the pulpit and the great bronze doors as well as a lovely icon, but essentially it remains an important place of worship.

“Things not seen by the casual observer.”
Reviewed 19 June 2014

There is something here for the those interested in the evolution of church architecture. One sees roads not taken by the mainstream, but fully developed here. While not for the casual tourist, this church is worth a stop for those with an eye for beauty or a sense of architectural history.

“Lovely town square”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

Lovely square in the middle of the town where you can enjoy a coffee or a beer or the popular summer cocktail, Apersol Spritz and watch people go by.

“Unusual wooden truss roof”
Reviewed 31 May 2014

The standout on this Duomo is the wooden truss roof that is rarely seen in a church of this age and size. Interior has artifacts from Roman time. Door is a copper relief with incredible details. HOURS ALERT - Duomo closes at NOON for lunch.

“Not worth”
Reviewed 31 May 2014

Not the most interesting thing to see in Ravello.You can skip it with not many regrets.It'a a common church with a simple white facade.The same for the inside part.In fact,I think is one of the most simple,dull,anonymous church in Italy.
You better visit the two villas,Ruffolo and Cimbrone,they are marvelous.
