Came upon this by chance. Large group of paintings by Tintoretto. Very powerful expression of the human body, as well as the mythical themes of Christianity.

Off the beaten tourist path. Full of major works by Tintoretto, painted/donated while he was a parishioner. Best appreciated with a guide (we recommend Luisella Romeo...seevenice.it) who can make the art and history come to life.

We walked into the courtyard which is filled with beautiful art work, very calm and quiet area, not very many tourists. Nice spot to get a way from it all!

This church is a place where you can sit and reflect. It certainly was a welcomed respite from a warm day. What was magnificent was the quiet serenity of the space that was enhanced by lovely art.

Cannaregio is the second largest sestiere (district)
with its busy Santa Lucia train station. Many
transplanted Venetians commute from the outlying
areas, “terra firma” to the locals, which is shorthand
for any place that is not Venice. Two Grand Canal
bridges serve Cannaregio, the newest (Constitution,
2008) still a local hotbed of controversy. Ponte degli
Scalzi is a busy link to the train station. Nearby

Nope. The church is in a residential area of Venice and away from most of the tourist attractions and crowds. So unless you have the misfortune of arriving the same time as a tour group does, you'll have the church mostly... More
