  • This cavernous place has many beautiful chapels and altarpieces. The Bellini altarpiece is the artistic highlight. Definitely worth a visit. 
  • The Guide to the good. The space is beautiful, Azelőtte and currently operating the hospital entrance and corridor

  • Great Basilica, which amazed by its size and fineness of the tombs of Doge. He would spend considerable time to appreciate all the details. In addition, it is located in a neighborhood where there are fewer tourists, which gives another idea of Venice

  • Very majestic and impressive basilica built in a venetian Gothic style!
  • An amazing church! I arrived at night while they held a celebration, so I had to leave. The security guy allowed me to take a picture inside the Basilica, but just for personal, so I'd better not share it here :P. I probably will visit it again.
