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 Duomo di Ravello is impressive, but Italy has many more imposing churches and Duomos. If you are in Ravello, may go inside this for 5-10 minutes, which would be enough unless you are a devout Christian and would like to pray.

This 11th century church is a mixture of Romanesque and Baroque styles, with rare massive bronze doors. The church's gleaming white façade is modern, dating to its last restoration in 1931. The bell tower, however is original 13th century. There is an impressive pulpit, some...More

Having my fill of Baroque churches in Naples, this was a delight. 11th C Norman/Sicilian/Byzantine. Great doors from Constantinople. Not quite the great Norman cathedrals outside Palermo (no great mosaics), but highly recommended.

This Duomo is nice but not very special. The preaching chair is beautiful, the rest of the church is relative simple. Still worthwhile to visit when you are in Ravello.

Stopped by to take a peep inside and were surprised to see a christening in progress. Such a happy time for all to witness! The duomo is not elaborate as most, but very charming.

The church & museum were lovely. Don't forget to go downstairs to the museum with some perfect pieces.

A window into the past. Beautiful spaces, decorations, and some historical context provided. Clearly a loved and cared for building still in use today.
