Take photos from the foot of the Cathedral, and then, climb the stairs to visit the inside. Notice the bronze doors at the entrance that date from the year 1066. The interior of the Cathedral has been remodeled many times and is now a mixture of Romanesque, Byzantine, Gothic, and Baroque architecture. The crypt purportedly holds the bones of Saint Andrew, Jesus’ first disciple, and they say the bones were brought from Constantinople in 1206 during the Crusades.
For more history, visit the Museo della Carta on Via Delle Cartiere for a lesson in the progression of handmade paper-making. The Arabs brought the art to Amalfi, and the locals developed their own technique, making Amalfi a European center for paper-making as early as the 12th century.
