  • Not much to see from the outside, but the inside is pretty spectacular! Monuments mark the crypts of some famous people, including Monteverdi and some of the Venetian Doges.
  • What an absolute beauty of a church. It took my breath away. We gasped at almost every art work and corner of the church. It's well worth a visit. It's massive too. And it only cost €3 to enter.

  • The second largest after San Marco, this beautiful church is worth a visit. The great Italian composer Monteverdi is buried here.
  • My second visit and hopefully not my last. As has already been noted the number and quality of the art works is outstanding and the carvings on the choir are beautiful. There's a peace and tranquility found here that is often absent in the 'honey pot' holy places. Whatever your religion or none this is a special place
