The San Sono Library, the National Library of Venice, is one of the masterpieces of the famous Italian architect and sculptor Jacopo Sansovino. Jacopo Sansovino was born in Florence and was heavily influenced by Michelangelo and Raphael. The external structure of the library complements the Doge’s Palace opposite the small square.

It is said that Napoleon plundered a lot of gold and silver treasures after arriving in Venice and shipped them back to France.

The library area is not large, and it is mainly open to locals. If you have enough time, you can come and have a look.
