Next to it there is the worldwide known Basilica, once the private chapel of the Doge and now the cathedral of the city, which holds the relics of Saint Mark the Evangelist.
It is well-known for its domes and its bell-tower overlooking the homonymous square dotted with some historical elegant café, such as Florian.

In the past prisoners crossed it and “sighed” for their lost freedom, when they were led to the Piombi prison.
