Trip Planner: Europe / Italy / Campania / Province of Salerno / Amalfi Coast / Salerno / 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.

Not to be missed. It was raining but nearby so we took a chance and got wet. It was worth it. The church was beautiful. But the crypt was a surprisingly moving experience, even after hearing about it.... more

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.
I loved the mosaics so colorful and also being of primarily women. Mary and many angels which you typically don’t see at churches. Plus the geometric shapes on the alters. So great that they offer QR code to look up to get the background on what you are seeing. It was a really nice church.
