Spoleto - Duomo di Spoleto

Spoleto - Duomo di Spoleto
The site, now occupied by the Duomo di Spoleto (aka "Cattedrale di Santa Maria Assunta"), was probably the place of an episcopal complex already in paleo-Christian times. In 956 here was the church "Santa Maria del Vescovado", that got replaced by another in 1067, dedicated to San Primiano. This church got destroyed by Barbarossa's troops, when they devastated Spoleto.

The construction of the Spoleto Cathedral begun before 1175 and was completed in 1227. The porch has some incredible delicate and fanciful carvings Here are three examples. Near the vielle player in the center is an old graffito.
