San Salvatore is one of the oldest churches in Italy still in existence. Its origins date back to the 4th century, but the building was restored in the 8th century. This makes it a rare example of Lombard art. It's clear to see that the church was built in Roman times, many columns and other ornaments were taken from other buildings and incorporated in the building.
Nowadays the church is very much in decay. Some of the columns look as if they could fall down any minute. You really have the impression that you're walking in an age old church.
The church is somewhat difficult to find, hidden in a cemetery. But the walk to the church is an experience in itself, as you can admire many family vaults of all styles and tastes.
