The Treasure and the Pala d’Oro

The Treasure of St. Mark’s is the richest documentation of gold and silver work, precious stones, ornamental glass and paintings, the most refined items produced for the churches and buildings of Constantinople and the most precious pieces created for the glory of St. Mark’s by Venetian craftsmen.

All agree that the most precious piece is the Pala d’Oro, the retable of the high altar of the church which glorifies the Evangelist and contains his relics.
