Chiesa di San Moise, Venice

4.3
The Chiesa di San Moisè is a Baroque style, Roman Catholic church in Venice, northern Italy.HistoryThe church was built initially in the 8th century. It is dedicated to Moses since like the Byzantines, the Venetians often considered Old Testament prophets as canonized saints. It also honors Moisè Venier, the aristocrat who funded the reconstruction during the 9th century.San Moisè is the parish church of one of the parishes in the Vicariate of San Marco-Castello. The other churches within the parish are Santa Maria Zobenigo, San Fantin, Santa Croce degli Armeni and the Basilica of San Marco itself.ExteriorThe elaborate Baroque facade, dating from 1668, is profusely decorated with sculpture. Some of its sculptures are generally attributed to Heinrich Meyring. The architectural design attributed to Alessandro Tremignon, with patronage by Vincenzo Fini, whose bust is found over the entry door. Statues in public spaces were forbidden in Venice, thus by putting his bust on the facade of a church, he could circumvent this ordinance and display his wealth and his recent addition to the Libro d'Oro or Venetian aristocracy.

  • This is a beautiful church. It's open everyday. There are masses held there. Located in the heart of high end shopping. It's sad beautiful church inside go outside and a Prada store in front.  more »
  • Would be missed for the washing of the feet of Jacopo Tintoretto and the last supper attributed to Palma il giovane, but lighting, as in almost all the churches in Venice, is crappy and doesn't allow virtually to watch these wonderful works. For this my rating "average". Don't miss the Pietà by Antonio Corradini

  • Beautiful church with its impressive façade. The only downside is the modern hotel building just Bauer next coming somewhat spoil the prospect... Hotel in cut stone representing Moses receiving the 10 Commandments should be seen but the rest of the Church has nothing special compared to other Venetian churches
