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.
