The church itself is beautifull inside but also from the outside you get the opportunity to see the Grand Canal from a different side as usually from the vaporetti.

This iconic building, much photographed, paintings, posters and prints in so many homes around the world ,- really does exist! The views of this ancient religious building, especially from the water are breathtaking. For someone who has had a picture of this building for many...More

Most pics of Venice show this beautiful church. I think the exterior is as beautiful as the inside. Worth the walk over the Accademia Bridge and 10 minute walk to the Church.

Approaching from the narrow back streets of Dorsoduro or coming down the Grand Canal to St Mark's, this great church hits you with baroque magnificence. Interesting to think of the annual ceremony down the centuries to build a makeshift bridge across the Grand Canal here...More

Visible from St Mark's square across the Grand Canal at the end of the Dorsoduro, the church is beautiful from the outside and is dedicated to yet another rescue of the Venetians from plague after petitions to the Virgin Mary. Apparently there is a festival...More

This Church is a striking landmark from the exterior guarding the entrance to the Grand Canal. Inside it is quite simple and restful. There is not a lot to see but it is pretty stunning all the same.

This church is rather bland. Some statuary, but little notable art. Rather grey and concrete-like inside.

Intersting church opposite St. Mark's Square. The area is quieter and quite smart with jewellery and art studios.

Last visit we didn't cross the water to visit Salute, but on this occasion we did. A wonderful gem to walk in and around something quite different and circular with many alcoves. We were so glad we took the time!

Artsy is the defining mood of this neighbourhood with
street artists, students, painters, sculptors,
restorers, curators, historians, collectors, heirs and
heiresses rubbing elbows. Peggy Guggenheim's
collection, now a museum, lures chic locals for
evening art aperitifs. Traditionalists and visionaries
cocoon in bohemian luxury. La Salute basilica
buttresses the neighbourhood to the east. Gondolas bob
