St. Mark’s Campanile Tourist Attraction

St. Mark’s Campanile

Native: Campanile di San Marco

While planning a sightseeing tour around Venice, do not miss St. Mark’s Campanile (Campanile di San Marco) which is a bell tower located in the Piazza San Marco. Being the tallest building in Venice, St. Mark’s Campanile is a symbol of the city and offers visitors an opportunity to enjoy the view of the lagoon. Originally built between 888 and 912, the tower collapsed in 1902 and was restored ten years later. The very top of the tower features the archangel Gabriel. Many years ago, the Campanile served both as a bell tower and a watch tower. Each of the tower bells served their special purpose, either execution, a new session of the Senate or the ending of the working day.
