There is a live broadcast of the famous Amalfi Cathedral, a 9th-century Roman Catholic temple located in Piazza del Duomo, Amalfi, Italy. The cathedral, shown in a webcam, is dedicated to the Apostle Saint Andrew, so the church has another name – St. Andrew’s Cathedral.
As can be clearly seen online, the architecture of Amalfi Cathedral is dominated by Arab-Norman and Romanesque architectural styles. St. Andrew’s Church was rebuilt several times: elements of Romanesque, Byzantine, Gothic and Baroque styles were added. In addition to the cathedral itself, its complex includes the 9th-century Crucifixion Basilica. From this basilica there are steps leading to the crypt of St. Andrew with his remains transported from Constantinople in 1206 during the Fourth Crusade.
Inside the Amalfi Cathedral, the entrance to which is visible in a webcam, there is a 13th-century wooden crucifix. To the right of the back door in the temple hangs another pearl crucifix brought from the Holy Land.
The main altar in the central nave of St. Andrew’s Church, where the live stream is conducted from, was formed by the sarcophagus of Archbishop Pietro Capuano. Above the altar there is a painting of Andrea dell’Asta “Martyrdom of St. Andrew”.
The celling inside the Amalfi Cathedral shown online is decorated with amazing painting dates from 1702.
The triumphal arch inside the temple is supported by two Egyptian granite columns. There are also two additional twisted columns and two chairs, which were part of an elevated 12th-century platform located in front of the iconostasis.
The front facade of the Amalfi Cathedral, displayed online, was rebuilt in 1891 after the collapse of the original. It consists of striped marble and stone with open arches, in which there are lace details that are not usually found in Italian sacred architecture. But the tiled dome is quite common among the churches of this region of Italy. Mosaics on the recessed part of the wall, framed by an arch, depict the “Triumph of Christ” by Domenico Morelli, whose original drawings are kept in the city hall.
A wide steep staircase leads to the Amalfi Cathedral, which is clearly shown by the webcam in live broadcast. The bronze doors of St. Andrew’s Cathedral were cast in Constantinople before 1066.
Behind the Amalfi Cathedral, where the live camera is aimed at, is an old Romanesque bell tower. Its construction began in 1180, and was completed more than 100 years later. The construction includes four small towers of the Arabian architectural type, decorated with arches and covered with majolica tiles. During the war, the bell tower was served for defense. Amalfi Cathedral has a beautiful garden with colonnades, arches and sculptures.
