Church
The Chiesa di San Giuliano, commonly called San Zulian in the Venetian dialect, is a church in Venice. San Zulian is in the parish of San Salvador.It is situated on the Merceria, the main shopping street of the city. Originally a structure from the 9th century; it underwent a number of reconstructions, including likely after the 1105 fire of the neighborhood. The façade was constructed in 1553-1554 by Jacopo Sansovino, and completed after his death in 1570 by Alessandro Vittoria.The flattened classical temple façade was paid for by the scholar Tommaso Rangone, whose bronze seated portrait appears above the door. In his hands, the physician Rangone holds sarsaparilla and guaiacum, two plants which he used to treat syphilis and yellow fever. The reliefs also depict a map of the world as was known at his death. As befitting his broad-ranging interests in classic texts, the flanking inscriptions are in Latin, Greek and Hebrew text.The interior was also designed by Sansovino, and the church consecrated in 1580.Main artworksFacade Elements of San Zulian Interior Girolamo Campagna (terracotta figures of the Virgin Mary and Mary Magdalene and a marble altar panel in the chapel to the left of the high altar) Palma the Younger (St Julian in Glory on the central panel of the ceiling) Paolo Veronese (Pietà with SS Roch, Jerome and Mark on the south wall) The upper walls are painted by Leonardo Corona, Giovanni Fiammingo, and Palma.

  • You expect in the middle of the road through the Piazza San Marco Mercerie, Rialto Bridge. In feeling, built, built the first church, but from then on set church buildings of other squeeze into narrow square is interesting, though.

  • Discovered by chance in approach to Saint Mark's square. Built at the end of the year 1800 has undergone several changes over the years: the main one of which was a major fire that destroyed her at the beginning of the twelve hundred, after which it was rebuilt. Today has a beautiful Renaissance style façade, designed by Jacopo Sansovino. The Interior has a single nave, has a few notable works: Palma il Giovane with his "San Giuliano in glory" and Paolo Veronese with "Sacred conversation." For the rest, nothing particularly notable, besides the environment is rather dark. A few minutes and go towards Piazza San Marco

  • Located a few meters from St. Mark's square. Although the Foundation of the original church dates back to the year 832, it has undergone many reconstructions to present the current appearance. Very interesting is the façade, the work of Jacopo Sansovino; on both sides of the main gate we see two inscriptions, one in Greek and the other in Hebrew. Gable is the urn of the physician and scholar Tommaso Rangone, covered with the tunic of the doctorate, delivering his knowledge and with two symbols of the new world: sarsaparilla root and branch of the guaiac. The interior is beautiful; the ceilings and walls are decorated with velvet. The ceiling, magnificent, presents the triumph of San Julian. Among other works, it has a picture of the Veronese. Open daily from 09.00 to 19.00 hours. The entrance is free.

  • Great facade and beautiful on the inside as well!
  • Very nice place
  • Espetacular
  • We had been warned not to eat in and around San Marco, but our granddaughter was so tired and hungry that we stopped at this eatery ... plates and pretty good service but, arrived to the Bill, we're outraged because in addition to covered with 2.50 per person (which is a lot of money but we may stay) we have added 12% to "service" ... I think it's just disgraceful!!! With this review I just want to warn anyone who is willing to eat in this restaurant that, in addition to bread and covered, must figure out a "good" 12% of the total ... evaluated and behave accordingly.
