Things to know about Saint Mark's Basilica

The St. Mark's Basilica is the largest and most important church in Venice, as well as the main monument of St. Mark's Square. The present building was built between the 9th and the 11th century on the ruins of an earlier church, only to be finished during the 13th century.
 
Known by the nickname of "Church of gold" for its status as a symbol of Venetian wealth and power, the St. Mark's Basilica presents an opulent exterior façade, surmounted by the cupolas. In its interior, it contains some artistic masterpieces of incommensurable value: the splendid Byzantine mosaics to the Pala d'Oro (the "Golden Cloth"), a true treasure of the Venetian goldsmiths' craft.
 
The St. Mark's Basilica is a must-see for any trip to Venice, but to discover all the secrets of this incredible monument a guided tour is recommended.
