Monastic complex of San Salvatore–Santa Giulia | Italy

Brescia is a city in the region of Lombardy in northern Italy, situated at the foot of the Alps. In this city, on the ruins of an ecclesiastical complex, the future king of the Longobards, Desiderius, founded the monastery of San Salvatore in 753 AD. The Longobards were a Germanic tribe who ruled Italy from 568 to 774.

This is one of a group of seven historic buildings (monasteries, church buildings and fortresses) that make up the UNESCO World Heritage site of Longobards in Italy, Places of Power (568–774 A.D.).
