North and South Façades of the Basilica
The San Marco Library Stands As Background for
The columns of San Marco and San Teodoro
Located in the Piazzetta next to Piazza San Marco,
the columns were brought from Constantinople and erected in the 12th century.
This column features a winged, bronze lion,|
a symbol of Venice.
This column is topped with a statue of|
San Teodoro, the patron of Venice
before San Marco.
The column-top statues are replicas — the originals are stored in the Doge's Palace.
