The Patriarchal Cathedral

Basilica of Saint Mark (officially known in Italian
as the Basilica Cattedrale Patriachale di San Marco
and commonly known as Saint Mark's Basilica) is
the cathedral church of the Roman Catholic
Archdiocese of Venice. It is the most famous of the
city's churches and one of the best known examples
of Byzantine architecture. It lies on Piazza San Marco
(in the San Marco sestiere or district) adjacent and
connected to the Doge's Palace. Originally it was the
"chapel" of the Venetian rulers, and not the city's
cathedral. Since 1807 it has been the seat of the
Patriarch of Venice, archbishop of the Roman Catholic
Archdiocese of Venice. For its opulent design, gilded
Byzantine mosaics, and its status as a symbol of
Venetian wealth and power, from the 11th century on
the building was known by the nickname Chiesa d'Oro
(Church of gold).

The building
The first St Mark's was a temporary building in the
Doge's Palace, constructed in 828, when Venetian
merchants stole the supposed relics of Mark the
Evangelist from Alexandria.

This was replaced by a
new church on its present site in 832; from the same
century dates the first St Mark's Campanile
(bell tower). The new church was burned in a rebellion
in 976, rebuilt in 978 and again to form the basis of
the present basilica since 1063.

The basilica was
consecrated in 1094, the same year in which the body
of Saint Mark was supposedly rediscovered in a pillar
by Vitale Faliero, doge at the time. The building also
incorporates a low tower
(now housing St Mark
