Basilica di San Marco, Venice: 246 reviews and 455 photos
It is hard to imagine another building in Western Europe more beautifully or richly embellished with the architectural and artistic legacy of the centuries than the basilica San marco. A magnificent hybrid of a church, it served for almost a thousand years as the tomb of St Mark, the private chapel of the doges and the spiritual heart and ultimate symbol of the power, authority, and continuity of the Venetian state.
The exterior has 3 facades, richly embellished with mosaic works of art in Byzantine style. On the main facade are copies of the famous bronze horses of St Mark.
Address: Piazza San Marco - SAN MARCO
