The Duomo of Salerno is dedicated to St. Matthew the Evangelist (San Matteo), whose relics are laid in its Crypt.
The cathedral was erected by Robert Guiscard and then consecrated in 1084 by Pope Gregory VII who had fled to Salerno to find rescue.
The atrium is surrounded by a portico supported by 28 raised arched columns. The main entrance to the Duomo has an impressive Byzantine bronze door set in a Romanesque marble portal flanked by two lions.
