Mausoleum of Galla Placidia, Ravenna
Description
View of the Mausoleum of Galla Placidia (foreground right) and San Vitale (background left) from the east in morning light. The small brick mausoleum dates from around 430 AD, making it one of the oldest monuments in Ravenna. Shaped like a Greek cross and covered with magnificent Byzantine mosaics inside, it was probably built as an oratory rather than a mausoleum. Galla Placidia, a powerful Roman empress, was never buried here but probably commissioned the building.
