Nardò Cathedral is a Roman Catholic cathedral in the town of Nardò, province of Lecce, region of Apulia, Italy, dedicated to the Assumption of the Virgin Mary. Formerly the seat of the bishops of Nardò, since 1986 it has been the episcopal seat of the diocese of Nardò-Gallipoli.
The present cathedral probably stands on the site of a Byzantine church. In 1080, a church was built here by the conquering Normans, which was elevated to the status of a cathedral in the early 15th century.
