Amalfi is open
at tourists eyes like a big “presepe” all decorated
by plants, orange and lemon trees The most representative
monument is the Cathedral which was built in the IX century
when the maritime republic became a great commercial potency.
One only has to observe the Cathedral to notice the multiple
influences which have contributed in enriching the culture
of Amalfi. Next to the Cathedral you can find the
Cloister of Paradise, in arabic style with entwined arches
on double columns. 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.
