Abbey of San Claudio - Corridonia (Macerata)

The Abbey of San Claudio has a singular shape that comprises two vessels of the same dimensions built one above the other; two spiral stairways in the corner towers ascend to the terrace, which introduces the upper church through a remarkable Romanesque doorway.
Created between the 5th and 7th centuries, probably on top of the ruins of a villa which formed part of the Roman city of Pausulae, the church of San Claudio was built using material from the ancient ruins. Its present shape dates back to the 11th and 12th centuries. Inside, both the upper and lower churches are square in form, and supported on four solid central pillars.
