  Column of Lion of St. Mark
by hopang

Column of Lion of St. Mark is also known as San Marco Column (Colonna di San Marco). It was designed by Michele Leoni and was erected in 1523. It is located at the northern end of Piazza delle Erbe just opposite Palazzo Maffei. The column was scupltured in Veronese white marble and is quite impressive when viewed from the opposite end of Piazza delle Erbe.

The lion on top of the column is not an original one which was brought down in the late 18th century. The current lion was replaced on the top of the column in the mid 19th century.

Address: Piazza delle Erbe, Verona
Directions: Located just in front of Palazzo Maffei at Piazza delle Erbe in Verona.
