Chiesa di San Pietro Martire, Murano

Landmark · Tourist Spot
San Pietro Martire is a Roman catholic parish church in Murano, near Venice, northern Italy.
The church was edificated in 1348 along with a Dominican convent, and was originally dedicated to St. John the Baptist. In 1474 a fire razed it to the ground and in 1511 it was rebuilt to the current appearance.
It was closed on 1806, a few years after the fall of the Republic of Venice, and reopened in 1813. It is currently one of the two main parish churches in the island of Murano.

  • This church surprises us, because the outside is very simple and doesn't call our attention but the inside is beautiful and kind of different. There aren't many statues, as in other churches around...  more »
  • A lovely church located close to the heart of Murano. Very quiet and peaceful. Free entry. Some lovely chandeliers made from Murano glass. Certainly worth a look.  more »
  • This church was built in 1511. It is one of two churches on Murano. It’s a pretty little church. It is worth a visit. It’s not a long stop.  more »
  • The church is little, but has a calming atmosphere. It is worth to visit it.
  • The church is nice. Went to the museum inside too. Bellini’s baby Jesus and Mary paintings are fabulous. Frescos of the last supper was beautiful. Also to see the the ceiling of the church which was made as an upside down ship. Amazing!
  • Interesting leaning tower of the church, it's a wonder how its been leaning like that without toppling for so long! Apparently everything on Venice is built on thousands of wood spikes poked into the waterbed, so is everything on murano. The place is definitely a must see, especially if you aren't going to visit Venice again and again. Very laid back life here, no ac anywhere most of the summer, so be warned. The tower can be seen from pretty much everywhere near the island.
  • Very interesting place
  • Great great great
