We navigated across the bridges and down the alleys without getting lost to locate easily this landmark at the tip of the Dorsoduro neighborhood. After a 15 minute stroll, we arrived to an empty church, and were rewarded with magnificent sights both inside and outside. I read about women who beg for change, so we knew not to give them...

A church that was built for the end of the black plague. It is a prominent site every where you are along the Grand Canal /lagoon. Enjoy the views from outside and the unbelievable joys within its walls.

There is a boat stop for the vaporetto right in front of this iconic landmark church, one of Venice's "Plague Churches." After a 16th- century outbreak of the plague that killed a third of the city, the Venetian Council voted to construct a church of thanksgiving for the survival of the rest of the population. "Salute" meaning health, it gives... More

A beautiful simple church. My favourite view in Venice. You know you have arrived when you look up and see the Santa maria de la salute. Well worth a visit. Walk there through the alleyways and piazzas crossing lovely little bridges.

Absolutely beautiful inside and out. I was in awe to the magnificent structure of this building. The inside is equally beautiful, very quiet with very few tourists as it seems it is not in any tours. Free to wander through, certàinly worth a visit.

While going for a quiet early morning walk to get photos of the sunrise I came across the Santa Maria della Salute and was just in awe of how beautiful it was. In Italy you can tend to get Basilica overload, but this church was simply so beautiful and also in a not so crowded place. Loved it and it's... More

We visited this church almost on a whim. We were on the vaporetto on our way to St Marks and it was getting a little too crowded for our liking so we hopped off at the Salute stop when we saw the church from the outside. It was even more amazing on the inside. Although it is much smaller than... More

Santa Maria della Salute is a beautiful church. The interiors boast paintings by Titian and Tintoretto. It's also a great spot to escape the sun. Entry to the church was free.
