Church of San Marco
The exterior of the upper church, which functions as the parish church of San Marco, is extremely simple. The baroque doorway is a later addition that was attached to the original 14th century fašade. The decorations of the lower church are particularly fine and are made up of frescoed vaults along with a number of religious paintings.
The fašade of the lower church was unadorned until1961, when a large mosaic by Gino Severini (1883-1966).depicting St Mark (see photo) was un installed.
