Buona domenica da Ravello

I came across a very informative website with beautiful pictures on Ravello: its history, location,  culture and cultural events and, most important, its churches. This website named "Ravello e le sue chiese" prepares you in a very comprehensive manner for an extended visit, in particular with information on tracing the origin of churches in Ravello. The main church is the Duomo di Ravello. Here, simliar as with the patron Saint of Naples San Gennaro, a blood sample of Ravello's patron saint St. Pantaleon is kept in a sealed glass ampoule, and liquefaction can be witnessed every year from 26 July onwards, for 6-7 weeks. You can read about the Ravello blood miracle here.
