Spoleto - San Salvatore

Spoleto - San Salvatore
San Salvatore" was 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".

San Salvatore has a basilica design with a nave and two aisles. At some time in history the structure may have got unstable - and so some arches between nave and aisles got bricked up.

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.

Strange look of a church nave, maybe because of these bricked up aisles
