  • The Procuratie Vecchie are located in St. Mark's Square, in the area opposite the basilica. Together with the Napoleonic Wing (or New Procuratie) and the New Procuratie, they form a monumental complex with three U-shaped wings and extend from the Clock Tower to the Napoleonic Wing. They were built in Renaissance style in the first half of the 16th century, designed by an architect whose name is uncertain, replacing an earlier 12th century building destroyed by fire in the early 16th century. It was intended for apartments and offices of the Prosecutors of San Marco. It is spread over three floors. On the ground floor there is a very long arcade with 50 arches all six supported by Doric pillars; On the top two floors there are, for each floor, 100 windows with a full-sixth arch, delimited by Corinthian columns; the building is complemented by a trabeation comprising 100 round windows and, above, a battlement formed by istria stone doors and vases. Today they house shops on the ground floor and offices on the upper floors.

  • This is part of the St. Mark's Square. Former administrative buildings are going to be renewed. Keep an eye on new openings! Some great cafes are situated here and it is next to clock-tower.
  • One of the originally preserved sides of piazza San Marco: amongst the most known squares in the world!
  • Pretty cool eh.
  • Make up the north side of St Mark's square, and were originally intended to accommodate the highest magistrates of the Republic, prosecutors note. Develop with a portico of 50 arches surmounted by one hundred Windows. Currently house shops on the ground floor and offices on the first.

  • Taking a walk through the streets of Venice is an experience that is truly worth it because apart from seeing and buying in its shops as if you take advantage to try something typical of place as well as see the incredible architecture of place. The fact that they are such small streets gives its signature touch to the city and is very worth getting lost in it.
