    Great church and facade!
    Beautiful church and visit. We paid 10 euros for the entrance fee to see all of the sites here: il Chiostro del Paradiso. La Basilica del Crocifisso, il Museo, La Cripta, La Cattedrale. Worth visiting.

    Relics of St-Andrews.
    We were lucky to be able to go in just before a wedding. We toured the museum and then I was surprised to find that the church had the relics of St. Andrews the apostle. People were in adoration and it was a beautiful crypt. Then as we went to visit the Church, wedding guests had arrived in their most beautiful outfits; and the bride was walking up. What a sight!

    Magnificent!
    Whst an historical and beautiful cathedral! There was a lot to explore, the cathedrsl itself but also a museum and a crypt where the relics of the body of St. Andrew are kept. We did not attend a guided tour, but the guides in each section were happy to answer our questions and share their knowledge. Absolutely worth visiting!

    Very good visit after 30 years
    This is a very stunning duomo from the outside and it is reasonably priced to enter, only 4€ each. The cloisters were as you would expect peaceful and contemplative, but were enhanced by an exhibition going on. The crypt and 5he main cathedral wer3 ev3n better. It is well over 30 years since I last visited here and it was as if I was seeing it for the 1st time. I would thoroughly recommend visiting

    For us, visiting it was truly a memorable experience.
    If you are in Amalfi, make a tour of its cathedral, a definite thing to do. It is located in the heart of the old historic center, just off the Piazza del Duomo. It is really a beautiful church. Built in the 9th Century it is a wonderful example of many styles of Romanesque, Byzantine, Gothic, and Baroque Architecture. It is dedicated to the Apostle St. Andrew whose relics are kept inside the church. The "striped" cathedral is the symbol of the city of Amalfi and is particularly enhanced by the imposing, steep and long staircase. This cathedral, which dates back to the beginning of the 10th century and has undergone several renovations, is actually the result of two churches. Exactly, because there were two basilicas in Amalfi. The first was built around the year 1000 by Duke Mansone, the second was built in the mid-9th century and was larger than the first. At the beginning of the 13th century, Archbishop Pietro Capuano and Cardinal Matteo Capuano decided to unify the two buildings, forming a single basilica. Its current appearance is the result of a reconstruction carried out between the 16th and 18th centuries, but the current façade is the work of Enrico Alvino, in the 19th century. The tower was instead built in 1180 and restored in the 18th century. Inside the church you can see the coffered ceiling covering the ancient marble columns and a panel, on the main altar, with the figure of Saint Andrew the Apostle, protector of the city of fishermen and sailors. The Baroque style is the result of renovation over the centuries after construction. The portal has a larger dome, with a fresco by Domenico Morelli and Paolo Vetri, as well as doors made of bronze cast in Constantinople and sent to Amalfi by sea. Gothic-Renaissance works of art are preserved in the chapels. During construction and renovations, the architects made changes to the church to bring it into line with the prevailing style of the time. It was not uncommon to use material from the previous renovation. Some of the decorations are now found in local museums, while the frescoes and other details have been lost. Amalfi is a fascinating city. Its history, culture and architecture should not only be appreciated and admired from afar. The best thing about Amalfi and its cathedtal is being able to visit it. For us, visiting it was truly a memorable experience.

    Stunning Cathedral
    Duomo di Sant'Andrea is a medieval Roman Catholic cathedral in the Piazza del Duomo, Amalfi. It is located up a set of stairs so can be challenging for some to reach. Great view of it if sitting at one of the many cafes in the square. It is dated back to the 9th and 10th centuries and redecorated many times in various styles.

    Beautiful and worth a visit
    I knew nothing about Amalfi before I went there..so when I walked into this beauty (on the main square) I was pleasantly surprised :). It's beautiful and worth a visit (its bigger than it seems). €4 a ticket, no long queues (at least at the end of march).

    Beautiful church
    We stopped by for a quick visit during our short visit to Amalfi. The church is striking when you first see it. It is beautiful on the outside. We decided to go inside for a quick visit. Not really worth it. Walk up the steps and take some pictures. Skip the inside.

For the small 3€ fee to enter this amazing Duomo it is pretty good value. The stairs you need to climb to visit are stunning and from the top afford a great view of the square. Very imposing. The first basilica has numerous artefacts to view and information to read and a dramatic crucifixion model hangs from the ceiling. The crypt is beautiful and the columns and ceiling are jaw dropping. Incredible detail and very well preserved. Absolutely startling to see. The main basilica is another marvel to be hold. Ornate to an unbelievable degree. The panelled decorations on the columns lead your gaze up to the sublime ceiling art. An absolute triumph. My neck hurt after a while as your eyes are transfixed by what has been achieved.

The price of admission is very reasonable (3 euro if I recall correctly). We enjoyed the different parts of the tour ... a courtyard, a very old portion of the church, a 'museum-like' area with religious artifacts, the crypt where the relics of St. Andrew are located, and the main basilica, which is gorgeous! Two different nights while we were eating dinner in the square, a bride and groom came out to take photos on the steps and the whole town cheered for them. It was quite fun!

The visit to this superb cathedral certainly began at the bottom of the 62 steps leading to the entrance! The church looked majestic with the shining golden mosaic on the top, the intricate Moorish details of the facade and the portico. On the left, we saw the bell tower, built in the XII. and XIII. century, with a precious majolica finish on the top.

This church was built in the X. century right next to the older Basilica del Crocifisso and in the XII. century the churches together formed a church with six(!) aisles in Romanesque style. Nowadays, they are two separate buildings, they were separated in the XVI. century. In the XIX. century, the facade was reconstructed, because it partially collapsed during a storm and strong wind.

We were lucky: the bronze door, which arrived from Constantinople in the XI. century was open, as there was a wedding and the bride and groom entered the church though it!

The interior of the church is in Baroque style, the ancient columns are enclosed and covered with inlaid marble. The high altar has four nice columns and is dominated by a painting depicting the crucifixion of Saint Andrew the Apostle. The ceiling is also covered with paintings. But we could not examine the details of the interior because there was the wedding mass.

This church dominates the main square of Amalfi with it's dramatic staircase and intricate facade. We did not make time to go inside but enjoyed the view as we visited a nearby cafe for beers and a snack. It was fun to wander among the nearby shops, see the charming fountain and enjoy the hustle and bustle of all the people passing by.

Entry is very reasonable 4Euros, and the route through the Duomo includes various sections which are all described in a pamphlet provided. The building is magnificent, up many steps, and the crypt was highly ornate and quite unexpected. The cathedral was quiet and we felt the history of many thousands of worshippers over the centuries. A welcome oasis of calm after the hustle and bustle outside.

A beautiful church situated in the main square. Some lovely steps leading up to this Roman Catholicism church dedicated to the Apostle Saint Andrew. The architecture is a mixture of Gothic, Romanesque, Baroque and Byzantine. Quite stunning. Well worth popping inside to have a look around and also to visit the crypt. Often referred to by the locals as the religious, historic and cultural heart of Amalfi. Unfortunately at the time of visit the church was surrounded by scaffolding

We visited the cathedral as part of a day-trip tour of the Amalfi coast. Entry includes access to il Chiostro del Paradiso, la Basilica del Crocifisso, and la Cripta del Duomo.

I really liked the cloister because it was so peaceful and the crypt is impressively decorated. The basilica was a little uninspiring and, inside, the cathedral itself was a fairly typical Italian cathedral; but it only cost a few euros to enter, so we had no complaints.

In front of the church is a grand staircase and at the top the two churches are build to each other. Entrance fee has to be paid , also show your QR. inside are some showcases in which some religious items are displayed. Walk downstairs to visit the crypt. Here is the grandeur visited as it upstairs must have been at some point in history.
