The mosaic

A story measuring 52 metres in length

A masterpiece and true artistic gem that continues to make its namesake famous the world over, the Otranto Cathedral mosaic is an extraordinary floor mosaic, one of the largest Medieval mosaics in Europe and one of the few that has remained almost completely unaltered over the centuries.
The Otranto tessellatum is unique in Medieval European figurative art, not only for its size and the originality of what it depicts, but also for the level of preservation and maintenance the mosaic has retained over the centuries.
