4.0
San Giovanni Elemosinario is a church of Venice, northern Italy, dedicated to Saint John the Almsgiver.This church was founded in 1071, and was completely destroyed by the disastrous Rialto fire in 1514. The church was rebuilt by Antonio Abbondi called Scarpagnino. The painter Antonio Vassilacchi worked here in the 16th century. Nestled into the dense area near the Rialto Market (with your back to the Bridge on the San Polo side, turn left just past the flea market booths; the entrance will be through the frescoed arch behind iron gates on your left).The altarpiece on the high altar depicts St. John the Almsgiver (1545-1550) by Titian; the right apse chapel houses Saints Catherine, Sebastian and Roch (c. 1533) by il Pordenone.

  • The location is in the shopping street of Rialto is difficult to understand the entrance, but I finally put in the day to return home because it seems close early in the evening, just doing a mass on Sunday, Titian "San Giovanni Eleemo Scenario" Could not be seen near. The entrance is just around the left where the arcade from the bridge is broken.

  • Not far from the Rialto Bridge the church has an entrance hidden among other buildings that concealed its nature. The interior is decorated with beautiful paintings and frescoes of Tintoretto, Munich and Pordenone. To visit!
