Church of San Salvatore - Amelia (TR)
The church stands on the top of the homonymous Mount overlooking the city of Amelia, in a position of particular strategic importance, controlling the very important Via Amerina, the main artery of the Byzantine corridor. The first construction of the church dates back to the Carolingian period, between the end of the VIIIth and the first half of the IXth century. The complex of San Salvatore, like so many high medieval religious foundations, was planted on the site where, with all likelihood, stood the remains of a previous building, a Roman building, whose function and nature is unknown, but of considerable importance. and having monumental characteristics, perhaps a temple. As evidence of this, the numerous finds found there, some of which are still present on the spot.
