681. Venice Landmarks: Basilica San Marco - San Marco Square, Venice
With over two square kilometres of beautiful mosaics, the Basilica of San Marco is one of the most famous sights associated with Venice. St. Mark's church is home to many wonderful treasures, such as the 'Pala d'Oro', a masterpiece in gold, many precious glasses, amphoras, cups, carvings and statues. This vast church is truly spectacular and was constructed on a Greek cross plan and crowned with five huge domes. Originally built as a shrine to St. Mark in the 9th century, this church was destroyed by fire. The second building was demolished in the 11th century to make way for a more impressive building and it has been remodelled over the years, becoming the cathedral of Venice, where many state ceremonies take place. A lift is available, which takes visitors to the top where there are fabulous panoramic views over the rooftops and lagoon. It is without doubt the city's number one sight, attracting enormous crowds.
