Sant'Eufemia, Spoleto (Umbria)

The Lombard history of Spoleto is best recorded architecturally in the church of Sant'Eufemia. Here, in the middle of Umbria, stands a twelfth-century church that serves as a text-book example of Northern Lombard design principles.

The three tall apses that protrude from the east end of the building reveal its unique interior design. The west façade, at the entrance to the church, has a single central portal.

The photo shows the west façade.
