San Pietro di Castello, Veneto

(4.4/5 based on 30 reviews on the web)
San Pietro di Castello is an island in the Venetian Lagoon, northern Italy, forming part of the Castello sestiere. It is linked to the main islands of Venice by two bridges.HistoryThe island was the site of a castle from at least the 6th century, and it is from this that the island and the sestiere are named. In the seventh century, it became the seat of the Bishop of Olivolo, later renamed Bishop of Castello. When Castello was merged into the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Venice it remained the seat of that archdiocese until 1807. The Church of San Pietro was the seat from the ninth century, while other attractions on the island include a campanile with a ring of bells in C, and the greenery of the Campo San Pietro.

  • The Church of San Pietro in Castello is accessible on foot 40-50 minutes from Piazza San Marco. You can also get there by the Caporetto, but thus wasting the opportunity to go through the Castello district. A residential and touristy City area. The admission ticket to visit the Church costs €3, the ticket is also included in the minimum package of Venezia unica. The Church was the Cathedral of Venice and retains remarkable works.

  • Probably founded in the 7th century was the Cathedral of Venice until 1807, when he replaced San Marco. The present Church, built on the Palladian design in the mid-16th century, is a Latin cross with three naves, with large dome. Has many elements such as the mosaic altarpiece attributed to Tintoretto, the "Virgin and child with souls in purgatory" by Luca Giordano, the "Chair of St. Peter" the marble throne at one time held the seat of St. Peter.

  • Unfortunately the Church was closed, so that I can report not much about it on the day only from the square itself, which is away from the hustle and bustle, and is very popular with the Einhimischen.

  • Beautiful church that is still used by the locals and not marred as a tourist hot spot. You can still light a real candle for petitions.
  • Qua sono ancora veri veneziani
  • Гарно.
  • Beautiful basilica and a pleasant garden facing ... shame about the three euros for a ticket
