    This large church, with 2 entries, presents an elegant brick façade decorated with 5 beautiful statues of Giovanni BUORA which of the "Redeemer". The vast interior with 3 naves with transept turns dazzling beauty. The main nave and side aisles are separated by 12 columns slender Istrian stone. The intrados and extrados of the arches of the nave are covered with a glitzy ornamental pageantry: a painted and gilded wooden structure enriched by magnificent statues of saints, prophets, and characters related to the Carmelite order. Above, in correspondence with the entrecolonnes, are 24 beautiful canvases devoted to the history of the Carmelite order. It houses several splendid altarpieces including "The Adoration of the shepherds" from CIMA DA CONEGLIANO, "Saint Nicolas in glory" of Lorenzo LOTTO, "The Presentation of Jesus in the Temple" of TINTORETTO. On the contre-facade, rises the imposing monument dedicated to Jacopo FOSCARINI, Admiral of the fleet Venetian. This church is a splendor which can maintain a hardware memory: indeed, a DVD with 80 photographs is on sale at the entrance to the building for the modest sum of €5. Having it acquired and looked, I was able to appreciate the quality.

    The Church is located next to the Confraternity of the same name. Born in 14th century Renaissance façade has a Gothic but with three rounded Gables. It is found from the tall bell tower that dominates the area. Among the works inside I noticed two paddles a lot and one by Cima da Conegliano. Nice also the organ

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.
