  • The Church of San Trovaso (contraction of Saints gervasius and protasius) with its two nearly identical facades for some time now is no longer attributed to Palladio. It is not very crowded which is unfortunate. Saturday, it was just the two of us inside while we saw dozens and dozens of people on the other side of the rio ferme photographing the squero close, none of that large group is then entered into the Church during the 40 minutes of our stay. Visit a church in Venice is like visiting every time a Hall of the Academy, but this concerns only a few. Inside no masterpiece but valuable works by Giandomenico Tiepolo, Jacopo and Domenico Tintoretto, Palma il Giovane, Rosalba Carriera, Michele Giambono. In the chancel furnishings are attributed to Brustolon. In the right transept a beautiful bas-relief by Tullio Lombardo. It is one of the churches that you will always be sure of finding open.

  • The Church of San Trovaso was the first bogougodnym institution, visited me in Venice. Surprisingly this was one of the few churches, where an entrance fee with me have not taken the money. The building of the Church on this site exists since the Foundation of Venice, that is, from the fifth century. Since then it has not once burned and collapsed. Most recently in 1583, with the collapse of the nave of the Church were looted relics of martyr and Bishop of Hrisogona. The Church was rebuilt seven years later and in this form has reached our days. In the name of the Church is present Holy Trovaso. This name can be found among the Saints. All this is due to the inclination of the Venetians to reductions. In fact the Church is dedicated to Saints early Christian martyrs Gervasiju and Protasiju. Of their names and got Trovaso. Façade of the Church is interesting the two portals, equivalent in importance. This was done, it was to divide fans two warring clans Castellani and Nikolotti, in which the building was located. This method of settlement of the feud served nekiem semblance of reconciliation and helped the young of these clans marry. Interior from the outside you should pay attention to the 53 metre high tower. The date of construction is unknown. The Interior of the Church is rich in brush paintings by famous artists. In the altar are two canvases brushes Domenico Tintoretto. To the right of the "adoration of the Magi," left turn Joachim from the temple. Present in the Church and senior Tintoretto Jakopa. It's "the temptation of Saint Anthony", last supper and a copy of the "Washing of feet". In addition, managed to identify the paintings: "the Holy Hrisogon on horseback" (about the year 1444) Michele Dzhambono and work of Palma the Younger "Madonna and child in glory".
