Mausoleum of Galla Placida
Last Updated by Pat on Dec 27, 2012
The building was formerly the oratory of the Church of the Holy Cross and now contains three sarcophagi. The largest was thought to contain the remains of Galla Placidia (died 450), daughter of the Roman Emperor Theodosius I. Her embalmed body was reportedly deposited there in a sitting position, clothed with the imperial mantle. In 1577, however, the contents of the sarcophagus were accidentally burned. The sarcophagus to the right is attributed to Galla's son, Emperor Valentinian III, or to her brother, Emperor Honorius. The one on the left is attributed to her husband, Emperor Constantius III.

Thankyou margjm & lupaling for your help.
You're welcome. The mosaics are wonderful and all walkable with the exception of S. Apollinare in Classe which is a short busride. There is a tourist office in town where you can pick up a free map showing the UNESCO sites. Also, if you have time, stop in to see the crypt below San Francesco for a different sort of 'gold'.
Any suggestions for where we should park our car?
There is a public lot across from the train station. Look for the parking meter machines for pre-payment. You can look at this map of Ravenna for additional parking lots.
