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.

  • I've been several times to the mausoleum, is one of my favorite places in Ravenna. The extensive Park (always very cured) is ideal for jogging or for a picnic, there is also a pretty big area with rides for the kids. The Park makes the place more attractive, the mausoleum is certainly interesting though is slightly out of the Centre, not much but if you're running and you want to visit the city, this is one of the places I'd discard, even if the entrance fee is really paltry. The only flaw is that it closes soon! Even a guided tour would be interesting.
