Church is a fine combination of an old building, restored and modernized in 16. century church. It is near the central part of Venice and far enough to be more peaceful than some too popular places. Brick façade is not as interesting as the interior.

Chiesa di San Giovanni in Bragora is quite an interesting church, as long as you enjoy looking at churches. Established in the 8th century, it has had a few remakes and it holds some nice works of religious art. Not very remarkable from the outside,...More

The importance of this old (8th century renovated 16 th century) church is due to the intention to host here some relics of John the Baptist and to the fact that A. Vivaldi was baptized here in 1678. The lady keeping this site was proud...More

S. Giovanni in Bragora is a very nice church with an old history that dates back to the Eight Century. The location is great: just behind Riva degli Schiavoni in a quiet and elegant campo. The church was the parish church of little Antonio Vivaldi...More

We stumbled on this square while walking the streets in Venice. How excited we were when we saw this church and the courtyard it is in. Local kids with their Moms and Nonnas playing all around.

San Giovanni Battista in Bragora is a small church, not one that hordes of tourists visit. This is part of its charm. It's on a quiet piazza, it's never crowded, and the priest there is welcoming. Named after John the Baptist, the church has a...More

This lovely, well-proportioned church is definitely worth a visit. It is not open all day so make sure to check the hours before counting on seeing it. The Cima inside is filled with light and you could spend some time studying it. The small square...More

within Arsenale, the naval base, which occupies over
one-fifth the area of Venice. This gentrified maritime
neighborhood feels busy but casual. Castello’s side

criss-crossed by laundry. Semiannual exhibitions add a
