The Basilica of Santa Trofimena is the primary example of religious architecture of the eighteenth century which is located in the heart of Minori on the Amalfi Coast.
The importance of the Church is due to the presence of the relics of St Trofimena, whose bones were found on the beach, according to tradition, between the seventh and eighth centuries and deposited in a temple not far from the shore. In 987 Minori became a bishopric and was built a cathedral at the center of the urban area.
The following architectural decay convinced the population to completely demolish the church, which was then completely rebuilt. In neoclassical style, a Latin cross, the Basilica of Santa Trofimena is characterized by the elegance of its decorative lines and presents an interior marked by three naves with side altars, transept, wide chancel area, enclosed by a apse.
The current Baroque crypt of Santa Trofimena, accessed by two curved staircases. It is 13.60 m long and 8.50 m wide. The mortal remains of the Saint are kept below the main altar in a fine marble urn.
