Church of Santa Maria de Alimundo

The church of Santa Maria de Alimundo was first mentioned in 992, but the present building owes much to a reconstruction in 1731. In 1812 it was abolished as a parish. Used as a school building, then for various public and private purposes, the church was finally completely abandoned at the beginning of the 20th century, a state in which it is still in today.

Church of Santa Maria de Lama

The Church of Santa Maria de Lama is one of the oldest churches in Salerno, probably built between the 10th and 11th centuries. The first church was Byzantine in its structure and was built on a pre-existing Roman building of the 2nd century. Damaged in the 13th century, the church was radically restored and decorated with frescoes. In the XVII century, the church was restored in Baroque style, which led to the loss of almost all the frescoes and mosaics. Thanks to restorations, frescoes from the 13th century, but also from the 10th and 11th century are now visible in the church.

Church of Sant'Andrea di Lavina

The church of Sant'Andrea di Lavina dates back at least to the 9th century. The first church, built on the ruins of a Roman building, was destroyed by an unknown natural disaster and was replaced in the 10th century by a new, larger church. A third church was built around the 12th century and at the end of the 16th century, it was given a Baroque appearance, which it still preserves in part. The bell tower can be dated to the 11th century. The church is so-called because of the Lavina stream that still flows under the nearby road.
