Designated as part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Ravenna, Mausoleo di Teodorico was built by Theoderic the Great in 520 CE as his future resting place. After a military defeat, his bones were scattered, and the mausoleum was converted into the church of Sta. Maria della Rotonda. The floor floor is a decagon. The upper floor is a circle crowned by a dome 11 m (36 ft) in diameter made of limestone from Istria. The facade and portico were rebuilt in the 16th century.

  • Aside from the historical rsvolti and construction, what a disappointment, desolate place. Buying tickets is in an Office probably years ' 60, never updated or renovated. With an electronic turnstile in theory leaves the discomfort to a work that ripped through the rest of the world would highlight in quite another way. The cost of the ticket a monument almost abandoned seems excessive Poor Theodoric.!!!

  • The mausoleum is one of the most famous monuments of Ravenna and the visit was almost mandatory. Estremmente environment suggestive to its history. Impressive is the cover, made of a single piece of stone of about 10 metres in diameter and weighing well over 200 tons.
