San Severino

places index

Founded around 550 AD after the Goths had destroyed the Roman Septembeda further down the hill, this beguiling town has a happy mix of medieval and Renaissance buildings.

Its outstanding feature is its unusual elliptical main square, Piazza del Popolo, circled by shady arcades (see above).

Before taking your aperitivo here, search out the Pinacoteca in Via Salimbeni 39, to see Pinturicchio's sumptious Madonna della Pace and earthy pictures by the local Salimbeni brothers. You can see more of their endearing work in the nearby romanesque church of San Lorenzo in Doliolo.
