This church dates back to the 1,300s which is amazing. It's very simple inside and worth the 3 euro admission price. You are provided a 1 pager laminated information sheet upon entering after paying the fee.

There are numerous side chapels and tombs inside the church. The history is amazing when you think how old this church is. Lots of good photo opportunities but no flash.

Off the beaten tourist path. Full of major works by Tintoretto, painted/donated while he was a parishioner. Best appreciated with a guide (we recommend Luisella Romeo...seevenice.it) who can make the art and history come to life.

We walked into the courtyard which is filled with beautiful art work, very calm and quiet area, not very many tourists. Nice spot to get a way from it all!

We came across this church by complete accident. Having had lunch around the corner we went in almost by accident.
What a find....although Venice has so many churches this one alone took our breath away. A collection of paintings by Tintaretto that have to be seen to be believed......the ability to go right up to all of the artwork....absolutely stunning, and almost never mentioned in travel guides. A "must visit".

This church is a place where you can sit and reflect. It certainly was a welcomed respite from a warm day. What was magnificent was the quiet serenity of the space that was enhanced by lovely art.
