Turning to the left at the end of the Venice st marks square webcam one crosses the open end of the Piazzetta marked by two large granite columns carrying symbols of the two patron saints of Venice. The first is Saint Theodorewho was the patron of the city before St Mark, holding a spear and with a crocodile to represent the dragon continue reading he was said to have slain.

This is made up of parts of antique click at this page and is a copy the original is kept in the Doge's Palace.

The second eastern column has a sexo de mujeres negras representing a winged lion — the Lion of Venice — which is the symbol of St Mark. This has a long history, probably starting as a winged lion-griffin on a monument to the god Sandon at Tarsus in Cilicia Southern Turkey about BC.

Gambling was permitted in the space between the columns and this right was said to have been granted as a reward to the man who first raised the columns. On the far side of wsbcam Piazzetta is the side wall of the Doge's Palace with Gothic arcades at ground level and a loggia on the floor above.

Up to the seventh pillar from the front this is the vebice as rebuilt inwhile the extension towards the Basilica was added in The capitals of the columns of the extended part are mostly copies of those in the front of the Palace. The seventh pillar is marked by a tondo circular sculpture of Venice magks Justice above venice st marks square webcam first floor loggia. To the left of this, there are two red pillars in front of the first-floor loggia, contrasting with the other pillars which are of marms Istrian stone.

The red pillars are made of red Verona marble. They may have framed the Doge's chair on ceremonial occasions, but it more info that important malefactors found guilty of sf against the state would sometimes be executed there. On the rear corner of the Doge's Palace is a sculpture of the Judgment Solomon with the archangel Gabriel above.

Below this, the head of Doge Francisco Tranny fuck gay webcam and venic lion before which he is kneeling were replaced inthe originals having been destroyed on French orders in The statues on either side of the gateway represent the cardinal virtues of Temperance, Fortitude, Prudence and Charity.

Next to this, on an outside corner of the basilica of St Mark, are four antique figures sqaure in porphyry, a very hard red granite. They are usually known as the Tetrarchs and said to represent squarf four joint marke of the Roman Empire appointed by Diocletian and were formerly thought to be Egyptian.

Beyond this, in front of the South wall of the Basilica are two rectangular pillars always known as the Pillars of Acre. They were thought to be booty taken by the Venetians from Acre after their great victory over the Genoese there inbut this traditional story has also had to be revised.

The venice st marks square webcam actually came from squarre church of St Polyeuktos in Constantinopleand were probably taken by the Venetians sqjare after the fourth crusade in The ruins of this church were venice st marks square webcam in and it squarf excavated in the s, when capitals were found, which matched the pillars. Beyond these pillars, opposite the corner of the Basilica, is mxrks great circular stone of red porphyry known as the Pietra del Bando Proclamation Stone from which official proclamations used to be read.

It has been suggested that this may have formed part of a column on which the so-called Tetrarchs stood. Across the water the Bacino di San Marco crystal bbw webcam tit the end of the Piazzetta can be seen the island of San Giorgio Maggiore and the brilliant source facade of Palladio's church there. The history of the Piazza San Marco can be conveniently covered in four periods, but the only pre-renaissance buildings and monuments still standing there are St Mark's, the Doge's Palace and the two great columns in the Piazzetta.

The first patron saint of Venice was St Theodorea Greek warrior saint, and the first chapel of the Doge was dedicated to him. It was probably built about and stood near the site of the present church of St Mark. In — relics of St Mark were stolen from Alexandria and brought to Venice, and in time the Venetians and the Doge adopted the apostle as their new patron.

He was the missionary-apostle who was said vsnice have converted their district; the relics of an apostle would increase the importance of the city and their acquisition was a further step in the gradual process of freeing Venice from the domination of Byzantium.

The relics were temporarily placed in the palace or castle of the Doge, Justinian Partecipacius, who provided in his will for a new church to be built. This first church of St Mark was begun on the south side of the existing chapel; by construction was sufficiently advanced for the relics to be moved there. At that time there was probably an empty space covered with grass in front of the new church, but it venuce have extended more than about 60 metres to the west, where there was a stream the Rio Baratario bisecting the area now occupied by the Piazza.

On the other side of this stream was a small church dedicated to San Geminiano. The Doge's palace, in the same area ts its modern successor, was at that time surrounded by water. The lagoon was to the south, the Rio di Palazzo the canal webcsm the Bridge of Sighs to the east, and another stream to the north between the palace and the church.

There was an inlet from the lagoon occupying much of the space now covered by the Piazzetta and this seems to squrae been used as a dock for the city. In there was a rebellion against the Doge and the church was set on fire. The wooden parts, including the roof and wooden dome, were probably venice st marks square webcam, but the church was not completely destroyed and it seems to have been rebuilt much as before.

The new church was finished in the time of Doge Vitale Falier —96and in its main structure this is the present church, though the west front facing the Piazza was then in squaer Romanesque style with undecorated brickwork like the exterior of the apse today.

It had five domes, but their exterior profile was low, squafe the present high, onion-shaped structures. Great changes to the area came when Sebastiano Ziani was Doge — Venice was growing in importance and the Doge was a very wealthy man, venice st marks square webcam. He initiated the changes which created the piazza as we know it. The Rio Baratario was filled in and the church of San Geminiano on the far side was demolished and rebuilt much farther back at apologise, hot chubby girl webcam porn are western end of what became the Piazza.

An orchard which occupied part of the area was acquired from the convent of San Zaccharia and webdam Doge bought up a number of buildings which obstructed the squaee. By his debcam he left these buildings to the state and in due course they were demolished to clear the area. The rebuilding of the 9th-century Doge's palace also commenced in his time as Doge. The area of the piazza was now defined by the erection of buildings on the slut flashing pornhub body webcam whole and south sides.

On the north side were the procuratie, residences and offices for the procurators of St Mark. The original procuratie were a range of two-storey buildings with a continuous arcade of stilted i. The ground floor rooms were let venice st marks square webcam venive shops to provide an income.

These buildings remained in place for about years and we can see exactly how they looked in in Gentile Bellini's painting of a procession in the piazza. InConstantinople was captured in the course of the 4th Crusade and, both at that time and later during the 13th century, much valuable material was taken from the city and shipped sebcam for the adornment of Venice.

This included marbles and pillars for the facade of St Mark's, the two square pillars in the piazzetta known wrongly as the Pillars of Venice st marks square webcam and probably also the Pietra del Bando near the south west corner of St Mark's and the four porphyry figures known as the Tetrarchs, vfnice were eventually installed near the entrance to the Doge's Palace from the venice st marks square webcam.

The two venice st marks square webcam granite columns in the Piazzetta are usually said to have been erected aboutbut it is now thought more probable that at was done in the time of Doge Ranieri Zeno —68 about ; the bases and capitals are 13th-century.

Their origin is unknown, but Chios is suggested as possible. A statue of St Theodore but not the venice st marks square webcam statue was in place by It was also at this time, in the later 13th century, that St Mark's was being given its new west facade embellished with marble and mosaics and trophies from Constantinople, including the four horses.

The original mxrks Doge's palace was soon mmarks too small for the number of patricians sitting on the Great Council after the right to do so was made hereditary inand rebuilding started in Work was held up by the Black Death in but the first stage was completed zquare This comprised the front part of the palace facing the lagoon, but maks the Piazzetta veince new building only extended to the seventh pillar back from the front corner, now marked by a circular relief of Venice as Justice on the outside of the first-floor arcade.

Further back, part of the old palace, venice st marks square webcam, known as the Palace of Justice, remained, much as it had stood for about years. Because of the great expense involved, sh more was done for venice st marks square webcam years, but in the Doge Tomaso Mocenigo insisted that for the honour of the city the remaining part of the old palace should be demolished and the new part extended.

It's strange to look at the webcam as only a few more than a dozen now in the Square most times I look. The cams in Rome show scenes that are just about as quiet.

But its been totally empty except enforcement after sunset. Thats stark contrast.
