Description
The Patriarchal Cathedral Basilica of Saint Mark (officially known in Italian as the Basilica Cattedrale Patriachale di San Marco and commonly known as Saint Mark's Basilica) is the cathedral church of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Venice. It is the most famous of the city's churches and one of the best known examples of Byzantine architecture. It lies on Piazza San Marco (in the San Marco sestiere or district) adjacent and connected to the Doge's Palace. Originally it was the "chapel" of the Venetian rulers, and not the city's cathedral. #Antonino #Basilica #Bridge #Campanile #Canal #Carnevale #Carnival #Casanova #Ciao #Cristaudo #Croce #Cupole #Doge #Doges #Dogi #Ducale #Fenice #Glass #Gondole #Gran #Grasso #Historical #Italia #Italian #Italiano #Italy #La #Lagoon #Laguna #Leone #Lido #Marco #Mark #Murano #Palazzo #Piazza #Ponte #Repubblica #Republic #Rialto #San #Serenissima #Sospiri #Square #St #Storico #Venetian #Veneto #Venezia #Veneziano #Venice #Vetro #Vivaldi
