Basilica di Sant'Apollinare Nuovo, Ravenna

4.7
Sixth-century Basilica di Sant'Apollinare Nuovo has been reconstructed numerous times since its consecration in 561 CE. Take time to examine the mosaics that decorate the nave and altar: these are the main draw of this UNESCO World Heritage Site, along with 24 marble columns from Constantinople. One of the mosaics may be the first Western representation of the Devil. With such a large and detailed display of mosaics, it can be helpful to carry a guide or read up on the historical details beforehand.

  • It really is beautiful in its simplicity and in its architectural wealth of the mosaics with which the human figures are represented along the aisles. Very interesting in its artistic and architectural uniqueness ... Worth visiting!

  • Located in the historic centre of Ravenna, deployed by the two most famous mausoleum of Galla Placidia and Basilica di San Vitale. Sant'appollinare New remains closer to the train station, I recommend switching to those who have even just half an hour "to lose" for Ravenna.
