Campanile di San Marco (St. Mark's Tower Bell) is the Bell Tower of the St. Mark's Basilica in Venice. It is situated in front of the Basilica San Marco, in the Piazza San Marco on one side and Piazzetta on the other side. It is one of the most recognizable symbols of the city.
The tower is 98.6 metres (323 ft) high and it is one of the most high and beautiful towers in Italy. It has a simple form, the bulk of which is a fluted brick square shaft, 12 meters (39 ft) wide on each side and 50 meters (160 ft) high above which is a loggia surrounding the belfry that housing five bells. The belfry is topped by a cube, alternate faces of which show the Lion of St. Mark and the female representation of Venice (La Giustizia: The Justice). The tower is capped by a pyramidal spire, at the top of which sits a golden monument of the archangel Gabriel. The Campanile reached its present form in 1514. The current tower was reconstructed in its present form in 1912 after the collapse of 1902.
