In over a thousand of years of history of the Venetian Republic, each epoch didn't fail to leave its trace. The Renaissance is no exception. One of the indelible marks on St. Mark's Square is the Moor's Clocktower. Enhancing the entrance of Mercerie, the commercial street of the city, the clock has several peculiarities. The two Moors are called the Old and the Young one. While the first beats two minutes before the exact time as a symbol of the past, the second does it two minutes later as a mark of the time to come. But the exceptional mechanism of the clock also indicates the day, the exact moon phases, and the zodiacal constellations. So, don't fail to admire it while on the square.
