San Marco - Roma

The church, near the Palace of Venice, contains the relics of Mark I located under the altar. Founded in 336 in honour of Saint-Mark the Evangelist, it became in the late-XVth century the church of the Venitian community in Rome. The inside is baroque whereas the façade has kept a romanesque campanile. Like the Palace of Venice, it is believed that the author might be the architect Albertini or Giuliano da Maiano.

To see: the double-arched row façade, the superb IXth century apse's mosaic ordered by Gregory IV, the blue and golden coffered ceiling bearing Paul II's arms, a lion reminding the symbol of Saint Mark, the funeral monuments.
