Glyph


The Campanile di San Marco (English: Saint Mark's Bell Tower) is the bell tower of the Basilica di San Marco and islocated in the Piazza di San Marco of the San Marco district in Venice. The tower stands at 323 feet tall and was first built during the 12th century.

HistoryEdit

Originally built as a watchtower in the 9th century, the Campanile di San Marco was later transformed into a bell tower. Each of the five bells has a special purpose: one announces the Senate, another announces midday, a third the opening and closing of the work day, the fourth council meetings, and the fifth and final bell: Executions.

TriviaEdit

  • In Assassin's Creed II, a glyph and a view point are located on the structure.
  • The Campanile di San Marco is the tallest building in Venice.
  • Interestingly, despite being the Basilica's bell tower, there are no bells in the Campanile's belfry in Assassin's Creed II.
