The Cathedral of Amalfi was built in the 6th century and is dedicated to St Andrew the Apostle, whose remains are kept in the crypt.

Its present facade, brilliant with mosaics, is in Oriental Style; its bronze doors, the first ones to appear in Italy, were given to Amalfi by Pantaleone di Mauro Comite, a noble man from Amalfi who melted them in the 11th century in Constantinople where he lived and led the Imperial Party.

Set beside the Duomo is the Cloister of Paradise. It was built the 13th century in Arabian style. It holds ancient sarcophagi, marble sculptures and mosaics.
