Piazza San Marco
St. Mark's Square - the main square in Venice. In the 9th century, it was only a small area in front of the Basilica of St. Mark. Cathedral until 1807 was the court chapel at the palace of the Doges. In 1777, the area acquired its current size. It consists of two parts: the site of the Grand Canal to the bell tower and the square itself.
The main attraction of the area are its monuments. Here you can see the columns of St. Mark and St. Theodore, the Ducal Palace, the clock tower of St. Mark, St. Mark's Basilica, the Old and New Procuratie, the Library of San Marco, as well as the tallest building in Venice - St. Mark's bell tower.
Integral part of the area are also pigeons, which once brought here from Cyprus.
