  • Originally San Domenico was the Church of the convent of the friars preachers, arrived in Melbourne in the early 13th century. Of the old church remains, today, only the Bell Tower in Romanesque style, the Church was, however, completely rebuilt during the 18th century. Inside there is a beautiful 14th-century crucifix, considered miraculous, from popular devotion: the particularity of this carving is the fact that if you look at Christ, from left, his face is marked by pain and agony; If you look at it from the right facial features are pervaded by the serenity of death. Particularly interesting and noteworthy are also some paintings, like "San Paolo" by Vittore Carpaccio and the "Pietà with Saints" by Leandro da Bassano. Impressive, in its simplicity of expression, the collection of "tolele", painted wooden tablets, which the sailors of Chioggia used to have as a votive.
