This church was not originally on our list of sites to see in Venice. After a recommendation from our hotel staff, we visited the church. It should have been our list of sites to visit. The architecture, inside, was very different than the many churches we have visited. The sculptures were though provoking. The church is definitely a must see.

Have to pay in almost all churches in Venice. This one was entrance free and it wasn't nothin special.

Visited a lot of churches while in Venice. Some are beautiful, some unremarkable. This one is absolutely worth the visit, and the whole quarter is really worth the slow walk and getting lost.

Couldn't get into San Marco because it was closed for renovation after the recent floods. Our guide told us this is second best, and he was right! Not much to look at outside, but the art and monuments inside are spectacular.

The church has a number of outstanding works of art, both paintings and sculptures. For me, the most moving is the Titian painting of the Assumption of the Virgin, above the alter. The paining itself is an amazing work, full of colour and life and seeing it in the position it was created for, rather than on a museum wall, makes the experience all the more powerful.
