Though we were only able to see the building from the exterior, we could see that what was once an imposing Roman rotunda, became a Christian church with an apse added to it. Of the Ottoman regime, a tall minaret was erected on one side....More

This building was constructed in 300AD to be a mausoleum for a Roman Emperor, but it was converted to a church and the remains of the mosaics are fantastic.

This was such a wonderful surprise! For 2 eur or a combined ticket, you get to see this gem of architecture! There is a Byzantine art exhibition inside, which is totally worth it.

I love the Rotunda. At the moment there is a fascinating exhibition of Byzantine mosaics and their copies from both Thessaloniki and Ravenna in Italy. Well worth a visit

When we visited there was an exhibition of ancient Christian mosaics (all copies). The building is a good example of Byzantine art.

A really old building with even though damagad but really spectacular and beautiful mosaics. The ticket cost 2€ for an adult and it's free for students (esp. university). It's only like 5 minutes walk from the Arch of Galerius.
