  • Built at the end of ' 400, it has come up to us virtually intact without overlapping of styles, designed and built by one artist. As a whole it is one of the best achievements of the Venetian Renaissance. The façade is characterised by the geometricism of the spaces and by a marble chromatic decoration; Original semicircular forehead with rose window. The interior, with a single nave, is of refined elegance for the marble decoration and for the spectacular vault with gilded coffers with painted panels of prophets and patriarchs. Very beautiful The canvases adorning the choir above the entrance and that of the Madonna and child of Palma the Younger. It's small, secluded, out of the tourist circuits, you have to go looking for it, but it's worth it because it's really a hidden little treasure.

  • A marvellous architecture using marbles. Feels very peaceful inside. Much less visited by tourists but worth seeing. A number of stairs lead to the altar which may not be found in the churches.
  • One of the most magnificent church I've visited.
