Basilica Spirito Santo, Ravenna: 4 reviews and 6 photos

  The Holy Spirit church
by vysnaite

Dating 6th century it used to be an arian church. in 16th century a portico with archs were added. Inside the church you can take a look at the original floor and real water level.

Ravenna used to be much lower than it is now, the water level has risen since Vth century (as one could expect...=) ) and all the buildings had to be lifted up. You can the real water level in most of the churches, some of them left a special place for that, but the best place to do that is Basilica of Holy Spirit.

Next to Basilica stands Battisterio Ariano

Address: Vicolo Degli Ariani

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
