Traditions and Religion

Visiting the Amalfi Coast means immersing in a heritage extraordinary for beauty and cultural richness, where religious traditions are still strong and where are many places of faith to visit.

A tour through the churches of the Coast cannot but start from the Amalfi Cathedral, of the IX century, with its famous staircase and the crypt with the saint’s relics, the Chiesa di Santa Maria Teresa dell’Assunta, a small jewel in the heart of Positano with its Black Madonna of the byzantine age, the Duomo di San Giovanni Battista, in Vietri sul Mare, with its characteristic dome in green and yellow majolica, the Duomo di Ravello, with the relics of the patron, Saint Pantaleon, and the Abbazia di Santa Maria de’ Olearia, among the most important Benedictine monastic buildings, which is a precious testimony of the art dating back to the early Middle Ages.

Among the religious traditions of the Coast particularly evocative is the Procession of Saint Peter, in Cetara on the 29 June, or the celebrations for the Holy Week, with the touching Processions of Battenti in Minori and Good Friday in Amalfi.
