Duomo di Salerno

The Cathedral of Salerno, or Cathedral of St. Matthew, is dedicated to Santa Maria degli Angeli and the Apostle Matthew, built on an early Christian Church, which in turn was built on the ruins of a Roman temple. A large atrium surrounded by arcades and columns that precedes the access to the Cathedral through a bronze door Byzantine. Inside instead extends a central nave decorated with mosaics and sculptures. The group includes also a bell tower built in the mid-twelfth century, the Chapel of Tesero that preserves Gothic relics and statues of saints from Salerno, and finally the crypt at the lower level consists of nine rows of columns and a double altar.
