A Spoleto Encore: Those Sites You Can’t Miss – September 4th, 2021
On September 4th, we headed once again to bellissima Spoleto, to view UNESCO World Heritage sites – and not only.
We visited the cimitero monumentale di Spoleto to see the architectural wonders, Lombard architectural splendor towering over it: the 4th-5th-century Basilica di San Salvatore, UNESCO World Heritage site.
We took in more World Heritage Lombard sculptural majesty at the 4th-5th-century A.D. Tempietto di Clitunno near the Fonti del Clitunno (Clitunno springs), whose waters were sacred to the Romans.
Roman Spoletium vaunted many a sumptuous and impressive edifice, including the 2nd-c. B.C. teatro romano. And what Roman treasures in the adjacent museum. Skilled craftsmen recycled Roman remnants to create the splendid crypts of Romanesque churches we’ll explore.
From the Romans to the Lombards to the early Middle Ages: sites you simply can’t miss take the stage in the bellissima Umbrian hill town, Spoleto.
And many blog notes on Spoleto enrich that talk.
