This church was originally the cathedral of the Arian bishops in Ravenna. The church was renamed for Saint Apollinaris when the saint's relics were moved there in the Middle Ages.

The church holds beautiful mosaics of saints, angels, doctors of the Church, and so on. A few mosaics had to be "edited" when the Roman Catholic Church displaced the Arians...
