  • A simple but beautiful church from the Renaissance period. It is a so-called plague church. So it was built with the hope that the plague will finally disappear. Construction began in 1489, but the church was not completed until 1771. Inside you can admire paintings by the famous Venetian painter Jacopo Tintoretto. Right next to the church is the Scuola Grande di San Rocco with other works.

  • Another beautiful church in this majestic Venice. It is in the same square of the school of San Rocco and has equally beautiful paintings by Tintoretto.

  • The church is pretty and the fans of Tintoretto will definitely love it. It is shameful that a ticket is charged, however cheap it is ridiculous to visit a church (you should never pay to enter a church). Especially since there is another ticket to visit the Great School
