Description

Architectural view accross the Grand Canal of St Mark's Campanile (bell tower), the bulk of which is a fluted brick square shaft, and is capped by a pyramidal spire, at the top of which sits a golden weathervane in the form of the archangel Gabriel. To the right of that is the Doge's Palace, built in Venetian Gothic style. The corners are decorated with 14th-century sculptures, the ground floor arcade and the loggia above are decorated with 14th- and 15th-century capitals.
