Vietri sul Mare is known for its wonderful ceramic tile and this dome, like so many alone the Amalfi Coast, is another beautiful example.

It isn't easy to find the entrance to this little Duomo: we got there by accident. We went by twice, and both times there were people there in some sort of church gathering, which is kind of cool. The second time, the gathering looked like it was over, so we went in. Some neat artwork, a triptych that looks about 15th century (we were in Florence right before this). In some ways, though, the best part is the ceramic dome.

During our brief visit inside the church we enjoyed watching a local school group receiving a lesson from the priest, we enjoyed contemplating the statue of Christ after the crucifixion, and we wondered about the blank panels in the ornate frames in the ceiling. What caught our eye, and is visible from much of town, is the brightly tiled dome exterior; this pay homage to the local history of ceramic craftsmanship.

For the location this church must have meant a great deal to the people. Architecturally its nothing special, the interior lacks the richness of many churches in Italy but you sense the hard work and love the locals have put into restoring it, so sit and contemplate its past.

The views in Vietri sul Mare are stunning and il Duomo is one of the centrepieces. Although a nice interior and generally nice church, the beauty lies in the ceramic cupole that is best enjoyed from some distance.
