Alla luce della situazione attuale di emergenza, la Romagna Visit Card ha deciso a malincuore di prendersi una pausa in questo 2020.

L’intero sistema turistico, non solo quello del nostro territorio, sta vivendo un momento molto difficile; per questo, siamo già al lavoro per rendere la Card uno strumento ancora più evoluto ed integrato, che possa contribuire a una maggiore attrattività del territorio e al rilancio del settore, una volta superata l’emergenza.
Per tutti gli aggiornamenti continuate a seguirci sulla pagina Facebook, che rimane sempre attiva come canale informativo e punto di contatto con gli utenti.
A presto!

Mausoleo di Teodorico - Ravenna

The Mausoleum of Teodorico

The Mausoleum of Theodoric is an unparalleled architectural episode: the massive structure, made of white stone, it is complemented by a monolith weighing 230 tons.
The imposing central plan tomb is the only monument of Ravenna entirely built of large square blocks of stone and laid dry.

Built by order of Theodoric himself around 520 A.D. as his own tomb, the Mausoleum - unique monumental tomb of a barbarian king of Late Antiquity - is composed of two decagonal cells, upon which rests the incredible monolithic dome, crowned by twelve handles. Its dimension are surprising: it measures almost 11 m in diameter and 3 m in height, for a weight of approximately 230 tons. The lower cell, cross-shaped, was presumably used as a chapel; inside the upper cell is placed a Roman porphyry tub, used according to the legend, for the burial of king Theodoric, who died in Ravenna in 526. In 540 Ravenna was occupied by the Byzantines and the body of the king ousted from the tomb.
One of the eight Early Christian monuments of Ravenna in the World Heritage List of UNESCO.
