When you first walk into Amalfi's main square, you can't help but notice the magnificent cathedral looming above. The 62 broad steps beckon you to climb towards the heavens to enter the beautiful Cathedral of St. Andrew.
The cathedral, built in the 13th century next to the 9th-century church still standing, is the resting place for the relics of St. Andrew the Apostle. But one of the highlights of the Amalfi Cathedral is the Cloister of Paradise. Enter through the left side of the portico to see the tombs of Amalfi's wealthy merchants and Moorish-style arcades made of white marble. In the center is a beautiful garden.
