Venice Architecture

The caryatids above got no attention at all, whereas crowds throng St Marks Square below.
Is it the architecture, the people, or just the place to be?

The cathedral on the island of San Giorgio was the last building designed by Palladio, above.
The room below is at the head of the church and was designed for the monks and priests to sit.

The altar below obscures the paintings on the walls, largely by the Tintoretto family.
