History & ReligionCultural Tourism

Ravenna is the capital city of the Province of Ravenna, in the Emilia-Romagna region of Northern Italy. It was the capital city of the Western Roman Empire from 402 until that empire collapsed in 476. It then served as the capital of the Ostrogothic Kingdom until it was re-conquered in 540 by the Byzantine Empire. Afterwards, the city formed the centre of the Byzantine Exarchate of Ravenna until the invasion of the Lombards in 751, after which it became the seat of the Kingdom of the Lombards. Wikipedia

The Mausoleum of Galla Placidia is a Late Antique Roman building in Ravenna, Italy, built between 425 and 450. It was added to the World Heritage List together with seven other structures in Ravenna in 1996. Despite its common name, the empress Galla Placidia was not buried in the building, a misconception dating from the thirteenth century; she died in Rome and was buried there, probably alongside Honorius in the Mausoleum of Honorius at Old Saint Peter's Basilica.

Emilia Romagna was once a stronghold of the Etruscans by the 6th Century BC. However, two centuries later the Gauls forced the Etruscans out of Emilia Romagna. The Romans arrived in the 2nd Century BC and changed the face of the land creating a series of market towns along a road named the Via Emilia. Today those market towns still exist and the road has lent its name to the western portion of Emilia Romagna.
