Religious buildings

Emperors, saints and bombings

Besides the Unesco World Heritage monuments of the city, there are other religious buildings that played an important role in the history of Ravenna. Often of ancient origin, they are churches and parish churches that can tell incredible and fascinating stories.

From a basilica built thanks to a vow of an empress who survived a shipwreck, to a church hiding a thousand-year-old crypt, a medieval architectural gem.

From a church that became an “entrance” to one of the main archaeological sites of the city, to the ones that became a museum, a theatre and even a shop.

Dozens of sacred walls, sometimes on less-travelled roads, showing the essence of Ravenna’s history and the complex story of these holy places.
