Overview
More
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 nice Duomo & is free to enter so I'd recommend you visit if you are in Ravello. The bronze entrance door is very interesting & in good condition.

Because it's in the center you can enter and see this place, it's not very unique, but little different.

If your looking for grandiose and extravagant try Rome. This church, like the rest of the beautiful city of Ravello is very simple and elegant. It's a great place to enjoy a quiet moment away from the hustle and bustle of a stressful day.

Visit was made interesting, thanks to an enthusiastic local who showed us the place where a saint's blood was placed (apparently it turns red on 27th July). It's on the left side of duomo when you enter.

I had the pleasure of a second visit to beautiful Ravello. It surprises me that most people prefer to meander the overcrowded and exploited Amalfi when such a spectacular place is perched just a few minutes above on the hill overlooking the Tyrrhenian Sea. This...More

A splendid Duomo, complete with legend of St Panteleone’s blood. It has interesting touches of Byzantine and other architecture inside and outside and worth a visit. Some interesting pieces in the crypt at €3 per person

This church is easy to find as it is the center of town. It is not as ornate as some of the larger churches but it is still nice. The central nave contains the "Pulpit of the Gospels" created in 1272. There is a chapel...More

No visit to Ravello would be complete without a visit to this lovely Duomo. Situated in the main square with views from the steps across the valley to die for! When you’ve paid your respects there are plenty of places to have a good lunch!

In the middle of Ravello main square. If it is good enough for Jackie O. it's good enough for all who came all the way up to Ravello.
