Amalfi
Cattedrale di Amalfi
The cathedral of Sait Andrew


At the top of a magnificent flight of stairs, the Cathedral overlooks the Piazza Duomo, the heart of Amalfi and the centre of all activity.
The building dates back to 1000, the interior is in late baroque style with three naves divided by 20 columns.

The gold caisson ceiling is adorned with four large paintings by Andrea d'Aste depicting the flagellation of Saint Andrew, the miracle of Manna, the crucifixion of Saint Andrew and the Saint on the cross. From the left hand nave there is a flight of stairs which leads to the crypt, which was built around 1203 on behalf of Cardinal Pietro Capuano, who, on the 18th May 1208, had Saint Andrew's remains brought to the crypt from Constantinoples on the return of the IV Crusade.

Next to the bronze statue of the saint, which was sculpted by Michelangelo Naccherino, student of Michelangelo Buonarotti, there are two marble sculptures by Pietro Bernini, of Saint Stefano and Saint Lorenzo.
