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.

This church is relatively plain compared to other similar churches in Italy but there are some interesting stone pulpits and altar. Love Ravello and the Duomo is worth a quick look.

We popped into the duomo for few minutes. A funeral service was being held inside so we did not stay long ... we didn't want to intrude on those private moments of grief. The PIazza outside the Duomor was dazzling. The views are stunning and left me wishing we'd had much more time in this little town. Next time.

Worth a look if you are in Ravello, but not worth a journey. There are much more spectacular examples such as St. Andrews in Amalfi. Easy to find at the top of the main square.

The duomo (cathedral) in Ravello is on the main square and we were looking forward to visiting but it didn't live up to expectations. I don't like giving a church an average review because it is a place of worship and, as such, shouldn't really be judged as a museum or visitor attraction. The pulpit is amazing and the light...

The Duomo stands in the central square of Ravello. Its decoration at first appears simple, with the walls being plainly decorated. After a while you begin to notice interesting touches, the most obvious of which is the two pulpits. The 12th c. Ambo, with its two sets of stairs stands opposite the 13th c. Rufolo pulpit with stone Lions supporting... More

This cathedral is just seeping with grandeur and history, the architecture is fascinating and we were fortunate to be a part of a wedding there. The wedding pictures obviously came out beautifully and led out to the square where all the members of the public watched on and clapped. I also liked the ambience of the square parade, where you...

If you really love seeing the inside of churches then go ahead and spend the 3 euros. It's nice but nothing extraordinary. The outside and setting held the most interest for me.

As churches go this one was okay but very much same old same old but to many no doubt an important church to visit. It was a little confusing at the entrance because there was a sign talking about entry fees to all the attractions of Ravello and a bloke standing in the doorway but we weren't ask to pay... More

This church was simpler than most I've seen in Italy, but beautiful nonetheless. It's history is evident when you sit and pray there. I can just imagine years ago.......attending mass there and praying for the safety of my family.
