Church of San Salvatore, Silvi

The church of San Salvatore in Silvi Paese is very old because it was built around the year one thousand. Although altered over the centuries with repeated structural and baroque interventions, it retains the charm of antiquity in the decorations of the portals in the original façade and other stone specifics, especially in the stoops, which are remains of a Roman temple. Inside there is a residue of a noticeable fresco of the thirteenth century, considered interesting as a rare example of Swabian art in Italy. There are also paintings by a local artist and eighteenth-century statues.
