Chiesa di San Zulian (Giuliano), Venice

(4.3/5 based on 60+ reviews on the web)
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. Organ from 1764 opus 12 by Gaetano Callido

  • The Church of San Zulian is found along the most frequented by tourists who visit Venice, what from the Rialto to Piazza San Marco. One of the oldest Venetian churches, was rebuilt a second time at the beginning of the 12th century, what we see today dates from the mid 16th century and is the work of Sansovino. Inside you will find a wonderful concentration of works by Palma il Giovane, its also the glory of San Giuliano on the wooden ceiling. The first altar on the right is the beautiful Pity by Veronese. Discover you the rest ... Don't miss a visit to this little gem. It is almost always open and is also quite frequentata...ma many are just merely curious, but that's OK too.

  • Departing from Piazza San Marco, just a little, that's where I saw the largest number of shops with Murano glass, it is possible that the Church of Saint Giuliano. The Church is ancient, the beginning of its construction accounted for another 9 21. Inside a very beautiful painted ceilings, 18th century organ, as well as you can find a picture of Paolo Veronese (for connoisseurs and lovers of this Italian artist). Few tourists here, the Church is in the distance, among the houses, but at the same time and near the bustling Piazza San Marco.

  • 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.

  • Igreja maravilhosa, assistimos um batizado e depois a missas. Com um padre muito bom e depois da Missa ele saiu cumprimentando todos presentes.
