Giurdignano: The Crypt of San Salvatore

Tenuta Centoporte

The Crypt of San Salvatore is one of the most interesting samples of rocky constructions in this area as well as linked to the Italian-Greek Monachism. Its three nave structure is characterised by a beautiful ceiling that reproduces, through structural touches, a coffered vault, a Greek cross, and a dome. The Virgin Mary with her Baby, next to two Archangels slightly bending and holding two censers, catches our attention.
