The basilica in Saint Mark’s Square is one of the most impressive churches I’ve ever walked into. Building started in the 1200s, and the decorative work is simply astounding. You can truly see the impact of the Catholic Church when you look at the churches of Italy. They are works of art, designed to glorify God. The art is a physical representation of faith.
The detailed mosaics throughout the Basilica are made of millions of tiny glass squares. Each one precisely placed to create astounding images. The detail is incredible. Interior photography is forbidden, but over the exterior doors you can see examples of the incredible detail and color that are captured within.
