Basilica of Saint Vitale #1 (detail)

Ravenna, Italy

An extraordinary example of Byzantine architecture, the Basilica of Saint Vitale was built between 527 & 548.

The massive expanses of colorful and highly detailed mosaics are still breathtaking even after nearly 1500 years.

Above is shown the Redeemer from the vault of the apse.
