This is a nice little church located opposite Basilica di S. Vitale. It is free and hence good for a short visit even though it doesn't have impressive mosaic like the Basilica. As it is quiet, it is a good place for prayer.

Although we read the church was not all that much to see, we made a visit here to pray at the medieval altar known for healing those with cancer as my husband is in remission from cancer. We found the altar inspirational.

Beautiful small church opposite the Galla Placidia. It has a special altar for praying for those who have cancer or heal those with cancer. Very special place.

If the door is open, take a look around. Some interesting paintings but nothing we found memorable when compared to the rest of Ravenna's sights.
