Despite its relatively small size, the clock tower is one of the most significant buildings on the “Piazza San Marco” square in Venice. The building is clearly visible from the water, from sailing on the Grand Canal ships. It was evidence of the wealth of Venice. The central part of the tower was built between the 1496 and 1499 years by the architect Mauro Codussi (two side wings of the building were built later). Until now the building immediately attracts the attention of tourists on San Marco square.
