Create an itinerary including Duomo di Salerno
Duomo di Salerno, the main church of Salerno, contains the crypt that holds the remains of St. Matthew. The church was built over an earlier church, which was in turn built on Roman ruins. Behind the deceptively simple façade of the cathedral lies an ornate crypt, displays of golden altarpieces, tile mosaics, and the tomb of Pope Gregory VII. From the outside, admire the bronze Byzantine-style doors from Constantinople. The 12th-century Arabic-Norman bell tower stands watch at 56 m (184 ft) high.

  • The outside of the Salerno Duomo does not prepare you for what you will see inside. There is a courtyard in the front, then please take note of the main entrance doors, they are beautiful. Inside...

  • Amazing duomo with multiple layers of history. Especially the tomba is worthy to check out and the pieces of old murals which can be found even behind the columns.

  • This is an incredibly beautiful and characterful cathedral worth visiting if you’re in Salerno. It was a Sunday when we visited and the morning mass was finishing so we entered for free. The courtyard is picturesque with some old statues and the bell tower above. The inside of the cathedral is strikingly white with a painted dome which is quite a nice contrast. It’s filled with natural light so it’s worth a stop to spend some time.
  • Very Ancient and where the tomb of St Andrews is situated
