What people are saying:

The Basilica of San Marco is located in Piazza San Marco in Venice. It was built in 828 and was rebuilt by fire in the 11th century, but it has a history of more than 100 years. The church got its name because of the buried remains of St. Mark. It was once the largest church in the Middle Ages in Europe. The whole church is very magnificent, using Byzantine architectural style, combining the essence of Eastern and Western architecture. The church can be visited for a fee. The decorations are said to be beautiful, and there are many rich collections of art. We are just the exterior, but even the exterior of the church can feel its beauty. The arched Roman-style gate, the eastern style and the Gothic minaret on the top, various marble statues, and relief sculptures are all worth seeing.

Additional Information

Introduction

Started in the 9th Century, Basilica di San Marco's architecture shows an eastern and Byzantine influence: note the golden altarpiece and the 13th and 14th-century mosaics that illustrate the cycles of the Bible. The magnificent domes date from the 12th Century. The Basilica houses the Marciano Museum, which contains the original bronze horses, copies of which are now on the terrace. Other great artworks are located in the Pala d'Oro , along with masterpieces of Gothic gold-smithing, located just behind the altar. At hundreds of years in the making, this beautiful basilica is not just a work of art itself, but houses some of the most important works of art in the world. Step inside (though mind the dress code) to marvel at the golden altarpiece, the mosaics dating back to the 13th century and which portray the cycles of the Bible, and the jaw-dropping domes. The basilica also houses the Marciano Museum and a wonderful display of the most amazing goldsmith work of the Gothic era.
