The interior has a single nave with a plain ceiling, with a Gothic choir with stucco part from the 17th century.The main artworks are the Dead Christ between St. Charles Borromeo and Angels by Domenico Tintoretto, the St. Augustine with Two Angels by Paris Bordon and a St. Jerome by Paolo Veronese.

  • In FAI spring days, we visited the Church of Sant'Andrea della Zirada, 1329. It's a Church totally forgotten back in Piazzale Roma car terminal, choked by new funicular to the Tronchetto (People Mover); as a result of the upheaval that has occurred has lost its religious significance. The façade is of simple brick, tripartite; the Interior has a single nave with four altars, one of which is precisely dedicated to Sat'Andrea. Unique is the high altar with highlighted an impressive marble structure, symbol of mountains, dominated by the Christ. Special is the presence of barco or hanging choir, which housed the nuns, accessed by a door, directly from the adjacent monastery, now destroyed.

  • Great place love the Gothic style of the church !!
  • I attended a mass, it was very beautiful. Original Roman Catholic chant, beautiful acoustics, very spiritual
  • Today closed too.
  • Always closed.
  • Fourteenth-century church not open to worship and visits. In the past cult building of the nearby monastery of nuns now demolished. It's worth a look at the Istria stone portal above the entrance.
