Duomo Ravello Tours

17 Reviews
Built in the 11th century, the Duomo, which faces the town square, is the spiritual and social center of Ravello. The cathedral is a combination of Baroque and Romanesque architecture and has undergone extensive restorations over the past 900 years, with its modern white façade a result of its last major renovation in 1931. The church’s bell tower dates back to the 13th century and is Moorish and Byzantine in style.

The Duomo features three naves, separated by two colonnades, each of which is formed by eight columns of granite, transept and crypt. The famous bronze doors were made using the relief technique, and are unique in that there aren’t many bronze church doors still in existence in Italy, particularly of this kind.

The cathedral's pulpit was built in 1272 and is supported by six spiraled columns sitting atop marble lions. Across from the pulpit is the Ambo of the Epistles, with its ornate byzantine mosaics. The church’s marble chapel was built during the 17th century and is dedicated to St. Pantaleone, a 3rd-century Ravello healer, who was beheaded after converting to Christianity. A small ampul of the saint’s blood is kept here, and is said to liquefy each year on the anniversary of his martyrdom.

Practical Info

Ravello is easily explored on foot. SITA buses run frequently between Ravello and Amalfi, and taxis are available near the main bus stop in Ravello. The Duomo cathedral has an adjoining museum containing various significant sculptures and other works of art.
