The church's ornate brick facade is quite impressive. The interior feels a bit sparse. There is some art, and we found Tintoretto's tomb to be of note.

Local small and quaint church that is worth a visit. Built in 1365, got burned and rebuilt again, but always kept its old charm. A small entrance fee of only 2 euros, in January 2015 and worth every penny. The artist that painted many of the drawings that hang in the church is also buried there. Worthy of a visit.

This large building houses the famous statue of the Madonna in a side chapel, set apart for prayer and contemplation. There are also several wonderful paintings in the main church and the hike out is well rewarded.

Whilst it isn't the most attractive church in Venice, it is worth a visit to see the artwork that adorns its walls.

You find very ornate churches in Italy but we liked this cathedral for its simplicity and art and history.

Madonna Dell Orto is famed for 30 years of major works by Tintoretto and its statue of the Virgin Mary recovered from the vegetable garden from which the church gets its name. The outside is far from grand: inside, its simplicity of form and lack of decoration makes for a peaceful and uncomplicated setting for Tintoretto’s work. It’s close to... More

The brick path in front of the church, like most of Venice used to be long time ago, the calm of the area and a marvellous Madonna by Bellini stolen by somebody that should go to hell (!), this church still with other fantastic paintings has a wooden ceiling that worth the visit. But why people go in venice to... More

A stunning building in and out1 It is well worth attending a service even if you do not speak Italian. Stay next door in the Monastery for a well priced, comfortable family sized room (they even supplied a cot).

Really loved Tintoretto paintings. Visit was cut short due a funeral that was scheduled about 45 minutes after our arrival, but what we saw was magnificent.
