The “real” Cathedral

7 March, 2012

The 25th March the new Patriarch Francesco Moraglia, the 48°, will officially enter in Saint Mark’s Cathedral.

But maybe you don’t know that Saint Mark is not always been the Venice Cathedral.  From 1451 to 1807 the Venice Cathedral was San Pietro di Castello (designed by Andrea Palladio).
