Chiesa di San Zulian (Giuliano), Venice

4.2
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.

    During the walk from Piazza San Marco to Rialto Bridge, on the right side of the street, this church. Square in front of the Church. Even though is a pretty small little square. It was a small church. You could spend quiet time inside shots and show that the prohibition, we couldn't picture was disappointing, but.

    San Zulian is another of the churches of Venice where the façade there is the statue of a Saint but the financier of the restoration. In this case, Rangone, a physician and scholar who stands in the Lunette holding of remedies between written and celebrate it and whose grave is in church. Inside there are other works but what intrigued me is the "dedication" of the Church.

    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.

Where to stay in Venice

Save money and avoid tourist crowds by booking your accommodation outside the historical center of Venice. Central Venice is full of picturesque canals and narrow lanes, but it is also extremely noisy and hectic throughout the day and late into the night. You can explore the ancient city's charms at your own pace by staying at a comfortable B&B or small hotel located in the city's residential suburbs. To stay close to the finest beaches and restaurants, check into a hotel on the island of Lido, the city's famous seaside resort.
