Amalfi is clear at tourists eyes like a colossal “presepe” all decorated by orange and lemon trees, plants.
The most emblematic monument is the Cathedral which was built in the IX century when the maritime republic became a big commercial force.
Precious is the Crypt which holds the remains of Saint Andrew Apostle.
Not to be missed is the museum of the hand-made Amalfi paper, constituted by an old paper mill and a library with around 3.000 books on the paper history.
One only has to contemplate the Cathedral notice the multiple influences which have contributed in ameliorating the culture of Amalfi.
Next to the Cathedral you can find the Cloister of Paradise, in Arab’s style with entwined arches on columns double.
