Gerace sure loves Churches, but we were still skeptical when we read this was the biggest cathedral in Calabria. Until we went inside. You may also note a sober building style, with cleverly reused columns from the ancient city of Locri. Visited right before closing...More

You feel you are in a unique and special place as soon as you arrive here. The beautiful little stone streets leading to the cathedral and the spectacular panoramas all add to the experience. A calm and meditative place to visit and well worth it.

The Duomo is a must if you are in Gerace and you should not miss it. Built over an older church, the Duomo has an impressive undergroung part, used as a museum, at least when I visited. The Duomo is the biggest cathedral in Calabria.

Beautiful old cathedral with features dating from various time periods - very well cared for and interesting to visit. The original Byzantine crypt is open to the public in addition to the later stages of construction.
