  • The façade of the church is simple with, at the top, a triangular eardrum pierced with an oculus. The left side is flanked by an original porch (sottoportego). The interior is divided, by a double row of medieval-style columns, into 3 asymmetrical naves as the building narrows on the side of the façade. The walls of the central nave are decorated with wooden statues of Francesco TERILLI's 12 Apostles. In the left-left absidian chapel is a large sarcophagus on which rests the statue of Saint Simeon Prophet, the work of Marco ROMANO. To the left of the entrance is a remarkable TINTORET "Supper" (one of the 6 in Venice). Unfortunately, as in SAN CASSIANO, an unkind guard watched all our comings and goings because of the constant ban on taking pictures. This I deplored once again because, without flash, they do not damage and allow to preserve the memory of a beautiful building. I fully understand the need to monitor in order to prevent damage and theft but the number of visitors is so small (some going around in 5 minutes!) that one could allow interested people who devote more than an hour to discover the church to keep testimonies.

  • This church is where you can cross the Scarty Bridge and go straight and turn to your left. There are many saint statues on the walls inside the church. It is a small but relaxing church. Photography inside the church is prohibited.

  • I don't know if the church is used for exhibitions, talks or what, but it had something strange. Some special painting, but not much. Columns with pink fabrics.

  • It's a pretty old building. Nothing too amazing
  • Pretty on the outside and nice inside as well!
  • Ok
  • The Church of San Simeone Profeta, or San Simeone Grande, is a religious building in the city of Venice, located in the sestiere of Santa Croce. The nickname "Grande" is used to distinguish it from the nearby church of Saints Simeon and Judas who, before the reconstruction of the eighteenth century, was of smaller size. It would have been founded in 967 by the Ghisi, Adoldi and Briosi families. Originally it was supposed to be a very modest building, it looks in straw and wood, because built in a peripheral and rural area. After a disastrous fire, in 1150 was rebuilt in stone and at the same time was raised to parish.

  • I came in by accident and attended Mass. Three people per aisle, I moved to balance the attendance, and the pastor started the function for the nine of us. A privilege. In this ancient Church of Romanesque plant with a remade neoclassical facade, listen to the Mass celebrated for eight Venetians and a terrafermic, with the voices of tourists behind the red curtains. Venice.
