UNESCO sites in Umbria


UNESCO sites in Umbria

In Umbria, UNESCO, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, has recognised Assisi and other Franciscan sites as "World Heritage Sites" as well as two others belonging to the serial site "The Longobards in Italy. The places of Power (568-774 A.D.)" which includes some of the most important Longobard ruins to be found in Italy.

Assisi and its Franciscan sites

In 2000 Assisi with its Historic Centre (including the Rocca Maggiore and the Rocca Minore), the Basilica of San Francesco and other Franciscan sites (the Cathedral of San Rufino, the Basilica of Santa Chiara, the Convento della Chiesa Nuova, the Tempio di Minerva (Temple of Minerva), the Church of Santa Maria Maggiore, the Abbazia di San Pietro (the Abbey of Saint Peter), the Basilica of Santa Maria degli Angeli and the Porziuncola, the Santuario di Rivotorto (Sanctuary of Rivotorto), the Eremo delle Carceri and the Church and Monastery of San Damiano), together with almost the entire municipal territory, has been declared a World Heritage Site.

Temple of Clitumnus

The "Tempietto del Clitunno" is an elegant early-Christian building dedicated to S. Salvatore which is found at the foot of Campello sul Clitunno. Some believe it was built in the 4th century or at the beginning of the 5th, whilst others believe it was between the 7th-9th centuries. It uses architectural elements from pagan shrines as recalled by Pliny the Younger, which were found in the nearby springs at the source of the river. Unlike other works of Longobard origin, the majority of the sculpted elements are original and not elements from the Roman age that have been re-used.

The Church of San Salvatore in Spoleto

The Basilica of San Salvatore is a very interesting early-Christian building built between the end of the 4thcentury and the beginning of the 5th. It has an original and unusual appearance, very similar to that of the "Tempietto sul Clitunno" (Temple of Clitumnus), which brings together classical art with eastern influences. Of the original basilica and its oldest transformations only the apse, presbytery and the front remain, as well as the re-use of numerous elements from a Doric order Roman sanctuary which gave rise to the early-Christian basilica with a trabeated structure.
