About Salerno Cathedral, Salerno

Dedicated to Saint Matteo whose remains are held here, Duomo di Salerno is an imposing sight in Salerno. It has been built on a layer of remains; a roman church and an early Christian church. The cathedral dates back to the 11th Century and is the main church of Salerno. The church was begun by Robert Guiscard and has been restored many times since. The bell tower is by far its most striking feature. It has mullioned windows and 8 bells that make a hypnotic sound. The entrance portico has 28 arches and the interior is decorated with mosaics and artworks from Francesco Solimena.

  • Although this Cathedral badly suffered in the earthquake in XVII century it still remains stunning cultural and historical monument of Norman culture. Here you can venerate Holy Relics of Saint Matthew the Apostle and Evangelist. Visitors are allowed to take non commercial photo without flash light and tripod.

  • Definitely worth to see. Makes great impression. A pity we couldnt go up on the tower

  • Most incredible Catholic church in all of Europe I am a Baptist, and therefore am not overly enamored with Catholic churches. Especially once you've been living in Europe for well over a decade, the general rule of thumb when it comes to Catholic churches is: you've seen one, you've seen them all. This was not the case at all with this amazing Cathedral. Let's put aside the fact that Matthew's crypt is supposedly kept here (I'm always dubious of those things, and even though I got right up close and personal with it, I couldn't see anything inside, so I can't confirm - even if I had seen something I wouldn't have been able to confirm whether that was in fact Matthew's remains or not, obviously). The downstairs section of this Cathedral is absolutely out of this world amazing, and I might even be going out on a limb here by saying that it possibly impressed me more or at the very least just as much as the Sistine chapel. The design and detail were absolutely incredible and I can't say that I've seen much like it. The Cathedral itself dates back to (what I was told) the year 1040, and my escort informed me that the frescos over our heads were stories from the Bible. An absolute must-see if you are in Salerno, even if you are like me and don't like boring churches - it is well worth the visit!

  • In the seventeenth century a serious effort has been done to spoil this beauty. In vain. The atrium is incomparable. The tower lovely. Splendid pulpits. Many other fascinating details. Please notice the lions at the entrance of the atrium, the left one a lioness, feeding her pup. The crypt, I'm afraid, is beyond repair.

  • The courtyard prior to entering the actual cathedral held Hippocrates first school of medicine, also the cathedral has 7 steps up to the pulpit, the only other Catholic church outside of Vatican city, to have these 7 steps because this cathedral was once the seat of power for the church after the Pope escaped an attack upon the actual Vatican. This church has a lot of history that's still relevant in our modern lives.
