Chiesa della Madonna dell'Orto, Venice

(300+ reviews on the web)
Religious Site
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.

You must ask to be accompanied by don Baride, the parish priest who is a master artist true and important, so you can enjoy and take home a once in a lifetime experience. Truly. It will be difficult for you to see his works ...
