This church on Guidecca was designed by Andrea Palladio, the same architect of Chiesa Di San Giorgio which can be seen two stops before on the #2 Line, as you travel from San Zaccaria just off Piazza San Marco. The white façade is reminiscent of Saint Stae on the Grand Canal, but not as ornate. The interior has good natural... More

I took the short vaporetto (waterbus) journey here from San Giorgio Maggiore and couldn't believe I hadn't bothered coming here before despite several previous visits to Venice. To keep this review brief, I agree with other erudite reviewers who have commented on the balanced proportions and understated beauty of this great church. I think it is Palladio's greatest achievement. The... More

We walked from the Hilton to this rather understated church from the outside, a good example of the Palladio architecture built in the 16th century for the victims of the plaque, has a peaceful and calming interior, and you will not find too many tourists

Il Redentore is, with nearby San Giorgio Maggiore, the best example of Palladian architecture in Venice, more than worth the vaporetto ride to the sedate, largely residential Giudecca. The simple, almost unadorned front is an austere contrast to the baroque excess on offer elsewhere in the city's churches. Built to celebrate the city's umpteenth survival of a plague epidemic, the... More

A classically designed church by Palladio. The exterior is well proportioned and elegant and inside is unadorned but beautiful.

This is one of the best examples of Palladio's work in Venice and is easily accessed by vaporetto. You aren't likely to find a lot of tourists here but on occasion, you will definitely encounter groups of architecture students. Go anyway.

The church was bulit to get rid Venice of the plague in the 16th century. It's grand, calm and peaceful. Definitely worth a trip to Giudecca. If you come this way, walk around this island, it's removed from touristy crowds and gives you splendid views of the Venice's main island.

Didn't get time to get up close but from a distance this was an excellent addition to the skyline across the waterways. A superb church which is very impressive.

One of the most beautiful churches in Venice - the pale interior makes it feel light, peaceful and still. Ideal for a period of contemplation and prayer as not so inundated with tourists as some other churches in Venice are. A wedding and a multiple christening taking place when I visited.

One of the great churches of Venice, built as a thanksgiving by the three-quarters of the Venetian population who didn't die of plague in 1575/6. The classical Palladio design looks beautiful from Zattere on the opposite side of the Giudecca canal. Inside it retains the classical look and feel, with loads of white marble. Other Venice churches have better art... More
