M is for Marco

San Marco, to be more specific, the cathedral of Venice.

Below is an artist's reconstruction of what the church looked like after it was built (in approximately 1063 AD), before the Venetians covered it with marble, mosaics, and sculpture.

There's one section today where you can still see the underlying brick work.

But most of the church looks like this~

I didn't know that marble came in so many different colors~

Everytime I visit this church, I see something new. I never get tired of looking at all the beautiful details.

Hi Annie, San Marco is very beautiful. It was so interesting to see the artist's reconstruction of it with the bricks. I loved that you captured a section of the original brick structure. The marble is just so beautiful. I can see why you love visiting and why you always find something new.

Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful photo collection. Have a wonderful week.

Really beautiful shots -- I can see I didn't look closely enough when I was there...

Lovely. I'm particularly excited about Venice again - we've decided to hang out there for three days in december before meeting Palma and Brad in Roma for Christmas. It's been too long . . .
