Santa Maria a Gradillo - (  catholic Church )  
Ravello - the city of Music - Amalfi Coast - Italy 

 
Italian law does not allow a  catholic ceremony to get place outside  churches.

Santa Maria a Gradillo was built between 975 and 1018 AD on land acquired by the local noble families of Rogadeo, Muscettola and Pironti, the church was consecrated in 1276. The church plan is basilica with three naves separated by rows of grey marble columns, the central part of the transept is covered by a high cupola dome on a drum-shaped base, which partially collapsed in 1715 and was reconstructed in the external decoration of blind intertwined arches made with blocks of grey tufa stone.

The Crypt is very interesting, with a fresco in the middle apse, depicting Christ Blessing and with decorative motifs dating to the 14th century. In the right nave of the church there is the ambone pulpit made in the 12th century by Alfano of Termoli, with both figurative and decorative precious mosaics motifs and twenty-one water fronts of glazed Arabic earthenware.

There are also frescoes in the sacristy (of particular interest one of Christ with the two Marias) as in the Frezza family chapel, immediately next to the entrance dedicated to San Nicola

 The church can hold up to 120 people.

The Church S.Maria a Gradillo  can be booked to celebrate Catholic weddings.
