A tribute to the miracle of health!

This church is dedicated to the blessing of health during 1630 plague. At the interior you will find some splendid Tiziano's.

We wandered over in the evening just as the sun was setting. It was so peaceful. No one around really. We saw a few nuns walking around. We sat on the church steps and watched the Venetian world go by with nearly I obstructed views of the Grand Canal.

Stunning to see this church at the end of the canal across from St Mark's, but it is quite empty inside - I found some od the smaller churches in Venice to be more embellished. Try the church on Murano - incredible glass work -

We stopped for a quick look at this church. Just a warning that a man dressed in a suit stands near the entrance with a basket "collecting" for the church. Entrance to the church is free and he is taking advantage of some tourists and their good nature. So many people stopped thinking they had to give a donation. Always... More

Beautiful inside and out. Free entry. Worth a visit if you happen to be over on the same bank as Academia and Peggy Guggenheim museum. Shops and cafes around this area are lovely and less busy. This is the church that juts out into all those iconic photos. Bus stop is Salute.

OK, it's really not fair that there should be so many beautiful churches in one place - but then this is Italy and this is Venice. So suck it up and get out there. And I think Santa Maria della Salute may just be better than San Marco. Or at least a close second. But easier to experience - a... More

Do it when you're on a vaporetto cruising the Grand Canal. Disembark a stop opposite and before the church, find a small alley where you can take a nice pic with the church as the background.

One of the most beautiful of the Church collections in Venice. A must. The marble work is beautiful.

Across the grand canal this church looks quite pretty. Unfortunately they need to do a better job of accent lighting at night time to make it be an evening highlight too. As usual you can get there by boat or walk through across the bridge if you are on the main island and them roaming the backstreets. I prefered the... More
