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.

The entrance to the duomo is around the side just opposite the Villa Rufolo - you can't get in via the main doors. There is a small entrance fee but it is just a couple of euros. We were the only people in there so...More

This beautiful duomo has intricate design and detail. The bronze doors are amazing along with beautiful mosaic artwork. Hard to believe it dates back to the 12th century.

The duomo isn't as big as expected but it's fine. Ravello is a small town so there's only so much you can do. I would only come here if I ran out of things to do but it's quite small and nothing special.

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.
