(4.4/5 based on 25+ 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.

  • 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.

  • From Piazza San Marco, continue on Riva degli Schiavoni to the area of the Biennale; turn onto via Garibaldi and continuing straight ahead, after the last bridge here in the small island of San Pietro. Tourists diminish more and more and appreciate a Venice more sincere and simple, made up of locals. All very quiet and simple, both stores that locals. Pleasant wander without half, take streets, bridges and enjoy the tranquility and authenticity hard now to find in the other Venice.

  • 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
