Venezia the bell tower of San Marco

The bell tower of San Marco is a mighty tower with a square plan, about 99 meters high including the crowning cusp, formerly a lighthouse for sailors, prototype of all the bell towers in the lagoon.
 It was built for the first time in the 12th century on the site of a probable watch tower and rebuilt in its present form at the beginning of the 16th century with the addition of a belfry with a cusp covered in copper and surmounted by a kind of revolving platform on  where the statue of the Archangel Gabriel is placed, with the function of indicating the direction of the winds.  Of the five original bells, only the largest remains.  The others, now replaced, were destroyed in the collapse of the bell tower in 1902.
 From the bell loggia you can see the wonderful panorama of the city and the lagoon from above.  Leaning against the base of the bell tower is the loggia that Jacopo Sansovino built between 1537 and 1549, adorning it with marble and bronze.
