Langobard architecture - Langobard temple in Spoleto

Lombard Romanesque architecture

The link is HERE in case this image doesn't hold. Spoleto (Umbria) was one of two southern Langobard duchies; Benevento being the other. They actually lasted longer than the larger three northern duchies thanks to the Vatican-Carolinian (Charlemagne) alliance.

.More examples of Langobard era architecture and artifacts can be viewed on the Italian Wikipedia "Longobardi" webpage, the "Duomo di Monza" webpage,, the "Architetture longobarda" webpage, and at 'The Cathedral at Monza: Centerpoint of the Langobard period'.
