  • This church, located at the foot of the Rialto Bridge, is the oldest in Venice. A building unique witness of the Serenissima Republic. The Interpreti Veneziani occur. Concerts are announced regularly. You can admire a collection of old instruments inside. Special story: the Venetians called this church San Giacometto because it is rather small, but it's a small masterpiece. you feel an emotion like no other, a real favorite!

  • Located near the Rialto Bridge, is considered the oldest church in Venice more commonly known as Church of San Giacometo. Interesting the exterior façade with a bell tower where you notice the old clock. The arcade is the only intact to the present day in Venice with the five Gothic columns of marble. Just above the arcade opens a window to half moon while the Middle dominates the face of the watch. The latter was not so much a decorative, but functional as the area in front of the Church was the focus of several activities, where they found themselves merchants and there were schools of painters and musicians, where much of the nobility manifested itself to converse but especially right at that point stood the famous market, said then tour around. In order to adjust all those occupations was placed that big clock. The façade is dominated by the belfry with three bells: on it stands the statue of the titular Saint. Cross with central dome inside, there are some works of Marco Vecelio (the Annunciation and the marriage of the Virgin), and the very interesting collection of stringed musical instruments. Downsides to having created in a tickets for concerts.

  • According to tradition, is the oldest church in Venice, dating back to the beginning of the fourth century. Externally it has a porch and a bell tower with a big clock, useful for active market in the square). Internally has no special features, but a nice collection of stringed musical instruments ranging from half of the 1,500 at the beginning of the eighteen hundred, Artemio Versari collection. Interesting.

  • Not thrilling, but rich in history, right next to the heart of the city, just at the end of Rialto bridge.
  • In large commercial cities of Europe even the churches were decorated with a clock
  • Beautiful church next to the Rialto bridge. Sometimes it is crowded.
  • Lovely place
  • Nice spot
