The Chiesa di San Giuliano, commonly called San Zulian in the Venetian dialect, is a church in Venice. San Zulian is in the parish of San Salvador.It is situated on the Merceria, the main shopping street of the city. Originally a structure from the 9th century; it underwent a number of reconstructions, including likely after the 1105 fire of the neighborhood. The façade was constructed in 1553-1554 by Jacopo Sansovino, and completed after his death in 1570 by Alessandro Vittoria.The flattened classical temple façade was paid for by the scholar Tommaso Rangone, whose bronze seated portrait appears above the door. In his hands, the physician Rangone holds sarsaparilla and guaiacum, two plants which he used to treat syphilis and yellow fever. The reliefs also depict a map of the world as was known at his death. As befitting his broad-ranging interests in classic texts, the flanking inscriptions are in Latin, Greek and Hebrew text.The interior was also designed by Sansovino, and the church consecrated in 1580.Main artworksFacade Elements of San Zulian Interior Girolamo Campagna (terracotta figures of the Virgin Mary and Mary Magdalene and a marble altar panel in the chapel to the left of the high altar) Palma the Younger (St Julian in Glory on the central panel of the ceiling) Paolo Veronese (Pietà with SS Roch, Jerome and Mark on the south wall) The upper walls are painted by Leonardo Corona, Giovanni Fiammingo, and Palma.

Very old, its first news dates back to 832; After several vicissitudes and a fire in 1200 that has practically destroyed it was rebuilt in ' 500 from the SLa façade reports written in Greek, Latin and Hebrew Ansovino in simple Renaissance lines. Curious his deputyda; The reconstruction took place for the funds made available by Tommaso Rangone, doctor, philosopher from Ravenna provided there was a statue of him and his tomb placed in the center of the presbytery. On the facade written in Greek,Latin and Hebrew while they are an exaltation of the doctor and his theories,while the symbols around his funeral statue in the bezel recall his knowledge. The interior is at a square aisle with two chapels and seven altars presents several works of art: remarkable the table of the main altar with the inconoration of the Virgin, the canvas of the Veronese-Sacred conversation-splendid ceiling with the fresco of the Triumph of St. Julian's.
Fica pertinho da Praça de São Marcos e quase não se dá por ela por entre as ruas estreitas e na agitação das mesmas. É muito simples por fora mas cheia de obras de arte nas paredes e nos três altares.... more »It is close to St. Mark's Square and it is almost not given by the narrow streets and the hustle and bustle of them. It's very simple on the outside but full of artwork on the walls and on the three altars. I recommend the visit.
A great church with a great facade. Having taken a BIG effort to find its location on Saturday evening and to read the notice on the bulletin board outside that English Mass was to be Sunday at 10:30 ---- it was extremely disappointing to get there the next morning and find 'no mass'. Though websites may not be updated the bulletin notice boards should be.
Amazing church! Shame they don't allow photos to be taken inside anymore. Just breath taking! Should be on all the walking tours because it's a gem to see!
