This church was only on our list "to visit" as it was next to our hotel in the Cannaregio district, but it turned out to be our favorite in Venice. It is still a church that has an active parish, but with all the history of 14th century church. The art work includes works by Tintoretto, Bellini, and Molinari. Tintoretto... More

Just another church between scores of churches in Venice.Situated in Cannaregio,the northern sestiere(neighbourhoud).A brick facade with many statues.The main attraction:you can find some Tintoretto paintings inside.Also,the church is the burial place for the artist. Not the most beautiful church in Venice.

As with many of the sites I eagerly searched for in Venice, only after giving up on finding it and admitting I was completely lost did I happen across it. I recommend not stressing out with too strict of an itinerary because you can spend many happy hours just wandering around lost without a clue where you are but enjoying... More

We started off our day by walking through the streets of Venice and stumbled upon this beautiful church. We didn't wind up going inside, but we did stay to soak in the beauty of the church!

A bit too far, not very spectacular, except for the paintings by Tintoretto who is buried there. Go instead to Frari or Santi Giovanni e Paolo.

I specifically wanted to visit this church because I love Tintoretto's paintings. Well, the Church is in an area of Venice quite off the beaten track, and that already is a plus! Moreover, inside the Church I had a chance of following a free tour offered by a local guide. A great experience for an art lover like me!

Well worth finding this church which is in a quieter sestiere of Venice. We walked from our hotel near the Accademia but the route took us through fascinating parts of the city. The Church contains some beautiful high renaissance paintings. Bring binoculars to see them clearly.

Tucked away in Cannaregio in the Campo Madonna dell'Orto on the Fondamenta Madonna dell'Orto lies this church sometimes known as the "Tintoretto Church". It is an old foundation and was originally dedicated to St. Christopher but in 1377 a statue of the Madonna and Child in a nearby garden was transferred to the church and the name changed. The church... More

On the east side of the city, a little out of the way but a reasonable walk through the back streets, but worth it to see the many Tintoretto paintings and also his burial site. The exterior is pleasing, perhaps the fact that it is in red brick rather than stone takes something away from the overall impression. However the... More
