Spoleto – Basilica of St. Salvatore


Spoleto – Basilica of St. Salvatore

One of the seven most significant monuments of the presence and power of the Lombards in Italy (568-774 AD).

UNESCO World Heritage since 2011, the Basilica di San Salvatore is off the beaten track, within walking distance from the historic center of Spoleto. The impressive Basilica dates from the fourth century. On the facade and interiors is evident reuse of materials from previous buildings.

At the top of the facade, the three windows are decorated with classic elements, while inside the Basilica, Corinthian columns support the dome in the presbytery. Inside there are frescoes fascinating as the jeweled cross with precious stones.
