The most important Basilica in Venice in Italy is undoubtedly the Basilica of St. Mark's Cathedral with a length of 76.5 m, a width of 62.6 m and a height of 45 m. It is a building that blends both Gothic and Byzantine styles. Outside, you can admire its façade rich in sculptures and mosaics. Five portals decorated with mosaics and carved arches, horses of St. Mark in sculpture and a statue depicting four Roman tetrarques are visible. The interior is also filled with ornaments. You will find, among other things, mosaics as well as a pavement made of marble and colored stones. The cathedral also contains some 2600 ancient columns, a treasure trove of relics, liturgical objects and ancient remains, and a retable decorated with precious stones called La Pala d'Oro.
