"Il Leo di San Marco" Piazza delle Erbe Tip by JLBG

Piazza delle Erbe, Verona: 66 reviews and 128 photos


In front of the Palace stands a white marble column with a walking Lion of St. Mark which was put on top in 1524 and symbolized the rule of Venice over the city of Verona. In 1797, in the beginning of the Napoleon occupation of Verona, it was symbolically put down. The statue standing today was erected only in 1886, after the unity of Italy.
