Chiostro del Paradiso information
Lonely Planet review
To the left of Amalfi’s cathedral porch, these magnificent Moorish-style cloisters were built in 1266 to house the tombs of Amalfi’s prominent citizens; 120 marble columns support a series of tall, slender Arabic arches around a central garden. From the cloisters, go through to the Basilica del Crocefisso, where you’ll find various religious artefacts displayed in glass cabinets and some fading 14th-century frescoes. Beneath lies the 1206 crypt containing the remains of Sant’Andrea.
