The Basilica di San Marco is essentially Byzantine in its design with a Greek cross layout and mosaics as its naturally integrated element. The mosaic decorations we see today developed through over eight centuries of the Basilicas history.
In fact, the original St Marks church, constructed in year 828, was located inside the Doges Palace complex. Venice built the church to house the relics of St Mark the Evangelist (supposedly, Venetian merchants stole them from Alexandria a few years earlier). The church burned down a couple of times. The last time it was rebuilt after a fire was in 1063 when the power of Venetian Republic flourished. The basilica slowly became a symbol of the republics growing power and wealth. The church is particularly famous for its lavish design and gilded mosaics. No wonder its nickname became Chiesa dOro (the Church of Gold). The richness and diversity can also be attributed to Venetian vessels that, upon return for the Orient, always brought something for the Basilica, be it a column, freeze or any other part of an ancient foreign building.
This information is only scraping the surface of basilicas grand history and richness of design. After all, a thousand words wont be enough to substitute a personal experience.
