  • The grandson of the famous Jacopo Palma the Elder, he created this pictorial masterpiece between 1583 and 1592. This amazing little setting was part of an ancient hospital then turned into a hospice. In the sixteenth century, a series of renovations culminated in the appointment of Young Jacopo, then 33, and produced a series of eight telecasts depicting the stori of the Crucifers, the function of the oratory as a chapel in a hospice and the character liturgical of the oratory. You enter through a small door and behind a curtain you go from light to dark, after a few minutes the pupils adapt to the soft light and you are charmed by a succession of beautiful paintings.

  • I was enchanted by so much beauty enclosed in a few square meters. A real sacrilege not to discover this hidden gem in an area not so beaten by tourists. Works of Palma the Younger illustrated with passion by the girl who welcomed us.

  • Delightful interior dominated by Palma the Younger’s 16th century restored pictorial cycle commissioned by Doge Pasquale Cicogna and depicting episodes relating to the religious order of the Bearers of the Cross and the two benefactor doges.
  • Small oratory but really nice with great paitings
