Trip Planner: Europe / Italy / Veneto / Province of Venice / City of Venice / Venice / Chiesa di San Zulian (Giuliano)
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.

Chiesa di San Zulian (Giuliano) Reviews
Small church like any other. in a city like Venice, it is nothing special. It is blended in tiny streets with other buildings more »
On Sunday, September 2nd we tried to go to an English mass at San Zulian Church at 11:30am but it was canceled due to some sort of holy day. However, we enjoyed the alternative option---a 12:00pm... more »
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.
No Masses in English on the island of Venice. Including San Zulian. Information is old
