  • Among the largest in Europe, keeps inside the remains of St Luke the Evangelist, really deserves a visit from "believers, atheists and agnostics." ... If only to admire its interior with upturned noses ... and even down to its paving with its polychrome marbles.

  • Northern Renaissance with reference to Roman imperial architecture. Purely veneto numerous domes. Of large surface and height with large Bell. Near Basilica of Saint and Prato della Valle. Deserves a nice visit.

  • The average Church. The huge edifice of the building attracts an interesting façade and beautiful ornaments in the metal door. In the middle of the empty and dull. You have to remember that the Church takes a break in exploring the siesta time (12:30-15:30). Free entrance.
