San Salvatore is a romanesque-style, former basilica church located in the center of Spoleto, Province of Perugia, region of Umbria, Italy.
The church is ancient and was erected prior to the 9th century likely around the burial site of two early Christian martyrs, Concordio and Senzia. Around that time, under Lombard rule, the church was dedicated to San Salvatore, but the monastery remained the Monasterium Sancti Concordii. In the 16th century, the apse was frescoed with scenes of the Crucifixion. The central nave is tall and long and ends in a circular apse. The façade has sculpted architraves. The interior appears to have repurposed ancient Roman columns.
