Amalfi Cathedral

Amalfi Cathedral

Amalfi Cathedral is a medieval Roman Catholic church that sits atop a grand staircase in the centre of the town. The original building dates from the 9th century and has been redecorated and added to several times since then, depending on the style and inhabitants at the time. The cathedral houses relics of Saint Andrew, the patron saint of Amalfi to whom numerous miracles have been attributed. A feast is held in Amalfi on June 27th every year to celebrate one of these miracles in which the town was saved from an attack when a sudden surge in the sea sunk the invading ships.
