Trip Planner: Europe / Italy / Veneto / Province of Venice / City of Venice / Venice / Chiesa di San Sebastiano
Discover notable works by Paolo Veronese at Chiesa di San Sebastiano, which is filled with paintings, ceiling canvases, and frescoes by the Renaissance artist. One of Venice's "plague churches" constructed to placate divine punishment sent in the form of pestilence, this structure also houses several works by Tintoretto and Titian. Its plain facade belies an abundance of artistic masterpieces inside, created by some of Italy's most celebrated painters. Pay special attention to Veronese's paintings near the altar, in which a bound Saint Sebastian confronts his tormentors. Before you leave, pay homage to Veronese by visiting his tomb, located just left of the presbytery.

Chiesa di San Sebastiano Reviews
Preciosa iglesia, de las mejores de Venecia. Una pena que estaba en obras y no la vimos bien. Los fresco eran lo mejor. more »Beautiful church, one of the best in Venice. It's a shame it was under construction and we didn't see it right. The fresh ones were the best.
ザッテレ河岸から少し入った静かな場所にある鐘楼が目印の教会で、そう大きくもなく知らなければ通り過ぎそうでしたが、ここはヴェロネーゼの絵がたくさんあると聞いていたので行ってみました。 外観と同じく内部も白く装飾されていて、天井には"アハミュエロスに女王の冠を授けられるエステル"、後陣祭壇画には"栄光の聖母子と聖人たち"、パイプオルガンの扉には"幼子キリストの寺院参拝"があり、そこから入る聖具室も天井... more »The bell tower in a quiet place, which was a little bit from the river Satele, was a landmark church, so I had heard that there are many pictures of Veronese, but I did not know it so much. The interior is also decorated in white, and the ceiling is "an ester of the Queen's Crown to Ahmueros", the "Glorious Madonna and Saints" in the rear altar, the door of the pipe organ "temple worship of the Infant Christ", and the Holy fixture room which enters from there is a ceiling It was filled with the picture of Veronese including "Crowning of the Virgin". The picture of Veronese was very beautiful because of its beautiful colors, and I felt it very much in the white church.
What a lovely church! In the quieter part of Venice away from the hordes of people where you can peacefully take your time and admire the art this church has to offer.
Worth a visit.
