  • The church of San Salvatore is the oldest monument in the city, a cult building composed of a circular body with a cylindrical dome, closed by arches, most likely dating back to the early Christian era. The structure consists of a rectangular aisle with double span, enlarged by a side chapel and a circular presbytery closed by a small rectangular absist. What characterizes the building is its structural simplicity, smooth walls inside and outside, made with good stone working technique, well squared and aligned. The two-span edair, divided by a cross arch, is covered with cruising vaults. Enigmatic are the round presbytery and the rectangular apse: in fact, it is not known exactly the dating nor the particular function, whether mausoleum, oratory or baptistry. Inside there are frescoes from the first half of the 12th century of Siena influence and in the apse an Umbrian school crucifixion of the early sixteenth century.
