St. Mark's Campanile

Local name: Campanile di San Marco

Belfry of St. Brand is the highest building in Venice and one of the symbols of the city. The towering tower is built of brick and white stone and combines Romanesque style with renaissance. There are five bells, each with a different event or time of day. The bell tower is topped with a pyramid-shaped helmet with a gold-plated statue of Gabriel.

The tower is 98.6 meters tall and like most of the buildings in Venice rises on wooden piles. At the top of the belfry, on which you can climb stairs or climb the lift, there is a lookout.

Belfry of St. The brand was built between the 9th and 12th centuries. After the famous collapse of the tower on July 14, 1902, it was faithfully reconstructed in 1903-1912. Only one bell survived the catastrophe - Trottier, who once called upon the Venetian patricians to attend the Maggior Consiglio.
