Procuratie Vecchie

The noble arcades of the old Palace of the Magistrates line Piazza San Marco on the farther side from the lagoon. After the buildings were destroyed by fire in 1512, they were rebuilt by Bartolomeo Bon, Guglielmo Grigi and finished by Sansovino. Crowned by a crenellated design similar to that of the Doge's Palace, they consist of a portico with 50 arcades and two storeys of loggias in the Venetian Byzantine style.
