Trip Planner: Europe / Italy / Campania / Province of Salerno / Amalfi Coast / Amalfi / Cloister del Paradiso
Blending Romanesque austerity with elegant Moorish-style architecture, Cloister del Paradiso is a true slice of paradise and one of the symbols of Amalfi Coast. Built in a secluded corner of the cathedral between 1266 and 1268, this cloister was used as the final resting place for noble families in medieval times. A garden planted with palm trees and surrounded by 120 slender twin columns is probably a 20th-century addition. Numerous sculptures, sarcophaguses, and remnants of 13th-century frescoes make it an open-air museum. A visit to Cloister del Paradiso represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Amalfi travel planner to plot your vacation.

Cloister del Paradiso reviews
Very beautiful but smaller than expected. Also, visit the cloister first before heading into the cathedral.
Good museum and cloister but Italy has much better artefacts elsewhere. 3 Euro ticket.
