Imposing church.

Intersting church opposite St. Mark's Square. The area is quieter and quite smart with jewellery and art studios.

This church is rather bland. Some statuary, but little notable art. Rather grey and concrete-like inside.

Last visit we didn't cross the water to visit Salute, but on this occasion we did. A wonderful gem to walk in and around something quite different and circular with many alcoves. We were so glad we took the time!

Beautiful white mini-cathedral across the Grand canal from St. Mark's Square. Definitely worth the trip over. Two things to be aware of: 1. Access across the canal is best by Water-bus. It's a quick next stop trip (note: 7 euro each way or included with a day or multi-day pass, which I would definitely recommend buying, many of the machines... More

Dominating the narrow tip of land that forms the end of the Dorsoduro, the massive baroque masterpiece of the Salute Church is something to behold, its a sober and beautiful counterpoint to the excitements of San Marco Inside, artwork and short recitals in the late afternoon create interludes that project strongly on the psyche.

At 3:30 every day they play a series of pieces on the church organ. It's lovely to sit and relax and be transported by the music. The church is nice and tranquil and is in a great setting with views all around.

We visited this 17th century building and were really impressed, particularly by the huge dome and the large space directly under it. The chapel where masses were said, was very beautiful. The area surroundign the church is most certainly worth a visit.
