The Longobards or Lombards was a Germanic tribe that ruled much of the Italian peninsula during the Early Middle Ages. Lombardian architecture was a synthesis of Roman, Bysantian, Germanic styles, and they played a "major role in the spiritual and cultural development of Medieval European Christianity". Seven fine and notable examples of Lombardian religious architecture around Italy make up this world heritage site.
