Madonna e Gesù Bambino a La Cattedrale di Sant'Andrea
"Madonna and baby Jesus in the Cathedral of St. Andrew"...
On the last of three glorious days in Positano, I arose early to catch sunrise over the village. However, at about 10:00 am …the cold rains came down dampening the glorious sun. I caught the rain soaked ferry down the coast to the seaside town of Amalfi. The Cattedrale di Sant'Andrea/Duomo di Amalfi is usually packed with tourists bused and ferried from hundreds of miles away, but with the dreary weather many chose to stay away. There has been a church on this site in Amalfi since 596 AD and the one built in the 9th century still stands today. The present cathedral was built adjacent to the old one in the early 13th century to provide a suitable resting place for St. Andrew the Apostle. The two were originally joined together to form a single, six-nave Romanesque cathedral. Pieces of the newer walls have been taken down to expose parts of the walls of the ancient original church, and one can ponder history by this glimpse back in time. I was enraptured by the sacred art devotional of the Madonna and Baby Jesus as I exited the magnificent Cathedral, a forever remembrance of my cherished rainy day in Amalfi.
