  • It is a church that stands quietly in the city of Venice so that it seems to pass by. Contrary to the heat outside, it is a space surrounded by silence. Inside the church, a candlestick is fishing from the ceiling, and on the wall of the church there is a picture of the Last Supper.

  • In a hidden corner of Venice a place that worth a splurge for a valuable work of Tintoretto's "the invention of the cross". The Church is open only on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 10 to 12 (volunteer). Maybe you could combine a visit of the nearby Ca ' Pesaro.

  • It was closed and we could not find opening hours anywhere.
  • The best Venice💜⛅🏰😎
  • Nice, in a very narrow footpath. It can be easily missed.
  • Nice although not very visible!
  • As happens in several Venetian churches, this Santa Maria Mater Domini is located in a narrow street, suffocated by neighboring buildings. Unfortunately it is one of those where Zealan custodians do not allow you to take photographs. The building, which recalls the Tuscan revival, was begun in 1504 and ended in 1540, the year in which it was consecrated. If someone was interested in the works of Jacopo Tintoretto, here is the invention of the cross.
