VeneZia Sights - Campanile di Piazza di San Marco by 


St Mark’s Campanile is the bell tower of St Mark’s Basilica in Venice, Italy, located in the square (piazza) of the same name. It is a recognizable symbol of the city.

The tower is 98.6 meters tall, and stands alone in a corner of St Mark’s Square, near the front of the basilica. It has a simple form, the bulk of which is a plain brick shaft, 12 meters on a side and 50 meters tall, above which is the arched belfry, housing five bells.

The Campanile di San Marco, or Belltower of St. Mark’s, has stood for more than a thousand years—or for less than a century, depending on how you define “truth in advertising.”

    Zeer interressant. Mooie warme kleuren in contrast met de blauwe lucht!
