# San Marco dragon

The San Marco dragon is a Julia set produced by

$c=-\frac{3}{4}+0i.$ |

Like other Julia sets on the horizontal center line of the Mandelbrot set, the San Marco dragon is symmetrical around its horizontal axis, but this particular set reminded Benoît Mandelbrot of St. Mark’s cathedral in Venice (and its reflection in the canal) more than the others.
