Abbey of San Salvatore - Montecorona - Umbertide (PG)rnThe abbey of San Salvatore di Montecorona, an historic-architectural gem, dating back to the eleventh century, in the green Umbertide countryside, is four kilometers from Umbertide, at the foot of the homonymous hill. According to tradition, it was San Romualdo who founded, in 1008, the monastery of San Salvatore di Monte Acuto, one of the most important Umbrian Benedictine abbeys. In 1050 the monastery was supported by San Pier Damiani. The ancient crypt is a basement of considerable artistic value, is divided into five naves, with columns of various styles that support the low vaults. The upper church, with three naves, was consecrated in 1105; preserves remains of frescoes and a well-made wooden choir. Interesting is the octagonal and circular bell tower, perhaps formerly a defense tower, with the recently restored six-hour clock.r
