Spoleto - San Salvatore

Spoleto - San Salvatore
Approaching the "Basilica of San Salvatore", once erected (on the ruins of a Roman villa) over the tombs of the martyrs Concordio and Senzia. Within the early 9th century, when the Longobard dukes ruled here, the church changed the dedication to San Salvatore, though the neighbouring monastery remained the "Monasterium Sancti Concordii".

In 2011 the Chiesa di San Salvatore earned UNESCO World Heritage site protection as part of the serial "Longobards in Italy. Places of Power 568 – 774 A.D" list.
