The building with beautiful columns was impressive. It was part of our walking tour. The Redemption church was built as a votive to save the inhabitants from the plague. Beautiful expression of believers faith.

Having visited San Giorgio last year we decided to explore il Redentore, a little further along the Giudecca. Like many Venetian churches, other than St Mark's, il Redentore is bright and airy inside and also relatively quiet and peaceful at most times. There is an...More

I'd say this is more for architecture lovers as the interior is fairly plain (albeit spacious and light), but the exterior displays some unusual and innovative features. It's one of my '1,001 buildings you must see before you die' so a trip across the water...More

This 16th century church, located on Giudecca and fronting Giudecca Canal dominates the skyline. Designed by Palladio and built as a votive, for thanks from deliverance from a plague. Atop the dome is a figure of Christ the Redeemer

The outside of this church is quite beautiful. We did not get a chance to go inside. There were many that I have to describe in that fashion as there are many churches in Venice.

You are on La Giudecca island, the church is pretty pretty, not too much selfiesticks around, AND you have a fantastic view to San Marco, la Dogana. You can have a quick local lunch at the snack next door

crowds. Symbolically, six metal teeth represent
Venice’s six sestieri (districts); the seventh,
Guidecca, points away from the others – part of
Dorsoduro, but separated by the Giudecca Canal.
Giudecca evolved from a center of shipyards and
factories to a quiet residential area with a
sprinkling of restaurants and bars. The majestic
