    Cathedral of the XVth century. Presents a marble portal (1474) in Renaissance style surmounted by the Aragonese escutcheon. The church houses an archbishop throne in fine marbles of 1573, and a wooden marquetry work of Sorrentine craftsmen and of the Neapolintan school of the 1700s. The Belltower is of the Romanic era (XI cen.) in the imposing belltower's base.

    The Sedile Dominova is the Romanesque Cathedral of Sorrento. It's a very elegant building of the 15th century with beautiful baroque trompe l'oeil on the walls of the open loggia. Way back in time the nobles of the city would meet here to discuss city affairs. Today it's a meeting place for the inhabitants of Sorrento.

    Sorrento Cathedral

    Sorrento's Cathedral is located on the Corso Italia and is well worth the visit.

    The outside is whitewashed and does it no justice at all, inside the building is beautiful, the ceilings and the altar are very impressive.

    This is a working Anglican Cathedral where locals come to pray.

    The town's cathedral in Corso Italia dates back to the 15th century and is in Romanesque style. The paintings on the ceiling are by Oronzo Malinconico and Giacomo del Po.
