Chiesa della Madonna dell'Orto, Venice

4.5
Regarded as one of the finest Gothic churches in Venice, Chiesa della Madonna dell'Orto contains notable paintings by Tintoretto, as well as the artist's tomb. Constructed in the 14th century on the site of a much earlier religious structure, the church has served as a gunpowder storeroom, barn, and stable over the course of more than six centuries. Often overlooked by foreign visitors, the building features a brick facade divided by columns and accented by mullioned windows. Pay close attention to the right nave, where you can see a well-known painting of the Virgin Mary, which Tintoretto created in the 1550s.
