Saint Mark’s Domes

Dome of the Ascension, Saint Mark's Basilica, Venice


Inside the five domes of the Saint Mark’s Basilica, located in the centre of the church and along its apses, the golden mosaics, one of the most riveting aspects of the visit, are preserved. Mostly dating back to the XII century, their reading should be made according to the church orientation: from the East to the West, along a sun-lit pathway symbolically associated to Jesus Christ.
