We took the walk up to Basilica di San Salvatore and walked the grounds. It is a beautiful structure. It is the oldest church in Spoleto. The doors and windows are very ornate and historic.

This is history brought to life. According to nowadays standards it is sort of bare but when time and conditions are taken into account it makes a Lot of sense. Well worth a visit.

This is one of the best examples of early archeology of any church or basilica and is wonderful. Be careful of opening hours though as we had to return

The Duomo is interesting and impressive, and the Rocca is big and imposing, but the real gem of Spoleto is this unassuming Basilica outside the city walls. It's not that far, all things considered, but in Spoleto you get used to everything being just a...More
