Chiesa della Madonna dell'Orto, Venice

4.5
Regarded as one of the finest Gothic churches in Venice, Chiesa della Madonna dell'Orto contains notable paintings by Tintoretto, as well as the artist's tomb. Constructed in the 14th century on the site of a much earlier religious structure, the church has served as a gunpowder storeroom, barn, and stable over the course of more than six centuries. Often overlooked by foreign visitors, the building features a brick facade divided by columns and accented by mullioned windows. Pay close attention to the right nave, where you can see a well-known painting of the Virgin Mary, which Tintoretto created in the 1550s.

  • Basic church that doesn't look good on the architecture side. Inside you are not allowed to take pictures and the entrance is 3.00 Euro per person. Is it really worth the cost? Here are the GPS coordinates for this location 45-26'46.6"N 12-19'56.8"E Visited during the month of August 2019.

  • The church is dedicated to St. Christopher but is known as Panagia Dell'Orto! It has beautiful statues in and out yet it has nice paintings by the painter Tintoretto.. There is also a free exhibition in the courtyard!

  • Easy to underestimate from the outside and it is absolutely beautiful on the inside. Somewhere worth visiting if you are on holiday, staying nearby.
  • Tintoretto is buried here. Lovely cool air church. Beautiful Cloisters .Off the beaten track.
  • Amazingly writer area of Venice, wonderful Tinteretto masterpieces.
  • How fortunate that Tintoretto left so much in one place.Amazing large works.Costs very little and worth seeing.Hope the Bellini is recovered one day,too.
  • Is no one of the best to go... but the story about is nice
