Trip Planner: Europe / Italy / Emilia-Romagna / Province of Ravenna / Ravenna / Basilica di Sant'Apollinare Nuovo
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.

Stunning place, with amazing mosaics. Particular loved the representation of women. Handy toilet near the gardens at back too! Highly recommend this site, was a beautiful space and incredible to see such detailed work on such a scale.
This is one of the easier cathedrals to visit. It has some of the most remarkable mosaics in the world.
