Scuola Grande San Giovanni Evangelista di Venezia, Venice

(120+ reviews on the web)
Architectural Building
Founded in the 13th century, Scuola Grande San Giovanni Evangelista di Venezia once contained artworks by Tintoretto, Bastiani, Bellini, and Carpaccio. One of the city's oldest "scuole," institutions that served as patrons of the arts, the building now serves as an elegant and historic space for special events, like concerts and weddings. Check the website for events held there during your visit, or stop by on your tour of Venice to take a few photos and admire medieval architecture. Across the street, a deconsecrated church still holds one of Tintoretto's works, signed and dated in 1626.

  • Terrible experience unlike any other warship place. The person who's in charge of opening the place did everything to make us feel unwelcome except telling it to our face! We are Jewish and Israelis and weren't allowed to get into the place on Friday's evening while service was about to start unless we commit to stay for all of it (one hour!) . We asked to, a least, take a look at the synagogue after made all the way over there and refused! We were deeply offended as NOT being able, as Jews, to get into our place of warship on the Sabbath! Don't bother to go there because the most important thing is missing there - the soul!
  • Grat arhitecture. Hidden pearl.
  • Came here to see a fantastic orchestra play. Beautiful church.
  • Go around to see the old university gate
  • A great little visit, especially the magnificent ceiling on the first floor, breathtaking is an understatement.
