Cemetery
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.
