The fašadeá has been reconstructed many times and restoredáto the original shapes in the late '800. The inside,latin crossáwith three aisles,is árichlyádecorated.áThe ceiling with wooden beams was made duringáthe XVIIácentury. great interest is also for theáChapel of the Treasure of Saint Gennaro built up in baroque style in the seventeenth century,for thee visit to theáexcavations of anciet palaeo-christians buildings and theáshow of the Treasure itself.
In theácathedral happens the liquefaction of the blood of Saint Gennaro, the famouse "miracle of San Gennaro",twice times per year,it is a sign of good luck,because San Gennaro is the patron saint of the city.
