Located in the upper older part of town is a beautiful Duomo. Its got lots of artifacts and very old frescos as well as beautiful adornments. One of the most unusual fresco painted on wood is of the Madonna and Child. This is notable since it depicts Mary breast feeding the baby Jesus.

This beautiful church stands out like a beacon of light welcoming everyone to come to it. It's beauty really stands out and it is the first thing you see when you enter Vietri sul Mare. the dome is like no other we saw when visiting churches throughout Italy. Do not pass an opportunity to visit this wonderful church.

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.
