84010 Ravello, Italy
NileGuide Expert tip:
The Church of Santa Maria a Gradillo is often open in the mornings, and the entrance is off of Via Roma.
One of Ravello's distinctive architectural landmarks, the 12th-century Church of Santa Maria a Gradillo is noted for the intertwining arches on its three external apses and the somber and serene Romanesque interior. Step into its quiet nave for a moment of peace and stop to ponder the wealth and power of Ravello in the Middle Ages and how it built and supported so many beautiful churches.
