Saint Mark

At the highest point of the front facade of the Basilica di San Marco, stands the Apostle and Venice's Patron Saint... flanked by six golden winged angels.

Below the saint is a golden winged lion, symbol both of the saint and the city. The Lion holds open a book with the inscription: Pax Tibi Marce Evangelista Meus or "Peace to You, Mark My Evangelist".
