Basilica of San Vitale in Ravenna.The church was begun in 527, when Ravenna was under the rule of the Ostrogoths, and completed in 548 during the Byzantine Exarchate. The church is of extreme importance in Byzantine art, as it is the only major church from the period of the Emperor Justinian I to survive virtually intact to the present day.
