Madre Maria in Cattedrale dei Santi Filippo e Giacomo - Sorrento
"Mother Mary in the Cathedral of Saints Philip and James - Sorrento"...
The main church in Sorrento is the Duomo, also known as the Cathedral of San Filippo and San Giacomo, which is concealed right in the heart of the town. Sorrento is not known as a pilgrimage site, but a beautiful seaside resort village. The Duomo dates as far back as the 11th century but was completely rebuilt in the 15th century in Romanesque style. The façade is very plain for a Cathedral of such interior grandeur, which has three naves separated by pillars and a very ornate ceiling. Next to the cathedral is a bell tower resting on an arch with four columns, which dates back to medieval times. Inconspicuously, I entered the cathedral and saw only a dozen elderly women sitting in the front pews reciting aloud a novena. Not wanting to disturb them, I ventured around quietly and was taken aback by the reverent beauty and peaceful aura of the magnificent Duomo. Two Sacred glass cases were built into the wall; one of Mother Mary and Baby Jesus, and the other of St. Joseph and the young Jesus. Also, the praying Mother Mary...all sculptures are gracefully beautiful and befitting of this resplendent Cathedral.
