  • Easily accessible from the castle gardens (or Biennial), at la riva dei Sette martiri, the camp hosts this elegant façade linear Renaissance church, where you can appreciate the rich portal of entry but that inside hosts wonders. The visit is a must for the ceiling fresco of the Towers, extended over five hundred metriq. that makes the awesome effect of doubling the width of the Church; almost an appetizer then appreciate by Paolo Veronese altarpiece "adoration of the shepherds and St. Jerome", the frescoes by Jacopo Palma the younger, not forgetting three wonderful paintings by Pietro Ricchi and the classically Baroque marble tomb of the doge Dogaressa Morosina Morosini Grimani with marine.

  • We are located in the Castle District, a few steps from the Biennale Gardens. The exterior of the Church is very simple and poor, but don't let that betray the expectations. Inside you can find an altarpiece by Veronese and Tintoretto's painting and, above all, the crazy ceiling of ben 540 square meters of Gianantonio towers. A true glance if you look at it from the center of the Church, making it appear bigger and higher than reality. Thanks to the guys of the FAI and the young Guides who guided us during the FAI di primavera. Congratulations!

  • This little out of the way church has an incredible ceiling with trompe l'oeil perspective that self corrects as you walk down the nave. I wish it were easier to get in to!
  • It is a very nice church just off the beaten track. One of the very nice things that you can find walking in Venice.
