This is one of the best examples of Palladio's work in Venice and is easily accessed by vaporetto. You aren't likely to find a lot of tourists here but on occasion, you will definitely encounter groups of architecture students. Go anyway.

The church was bulit to get rid Venice of the plague in the 16th century. It's grand, calm and peaceful. Definitely worth a trip to Giudecca. If you come this way, walk around this island, it's removed from touristy crowds and gives you splendid views...More

Didn't get time to get up close but from a distance this was an excellent addition to the skyline across the waterways. A superb church which is very impressive.

One of the most beautiful churches in Venice - the pale interior makes it feel light, peaceful and still. Ideal for a period of contemplation and prayer as not so inundated with tourists as some other churches in Venice are. A wedding and a multiple...More

One of the great churches of Venice, built as a thanksgiving by the three-quarters of the Venetian population who didn't die of plague in 1575/6. The classical Palladio design looks beautiful from Zattere on the opposite side of the Giudecca canal. Inside it retains the...More

The church itself is lovely, and it is one of the few Palladio designed worship houses in Venice. Once a year, on the third week-end in July, the Festa del Redentore takes place and the relative quiet of the church and the waterfront surrounding it...More

It's lovely to cross the water to Giudecca and visit this Palladio church, restored relatively recently. A haven of stillness reflected in the simplicity of the architecture. My particular highlight was the Vivarini madonna in the sacristy, particularly serene in deep orange robes. This is...More

A beautiful church, one of Palladio's best, and not spoilt by later Baroque additions. Within a short water bus journey of the main sites, but away from the hordes of tour groups from the huge cruise ships now spoiling Venice's main sites.

A classic Palladio structure and part of Venice's city state history, a visit gets you away from the main tourist spots. A must if you are inspired by the grandeur of churches

Giudecca is a retreat for Venetians away from the
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
