This church named after saint Rocco back up to a larger, older one named after Pantalon. The role of tradition is significant in the churches here. I will venture to say that over the centuries many parishioners knew more about the tradition associated with these...More

This pretty white church, which is relatively small, is located near the Scuola. It is noteworthy for the large Tintoretto paintings. My personal favorite was San Rocco curing the plague victims. There are several others with the San Rocco theme. It also houses San Rocco’s...More

Chiesa di San Rocco is another beautiful church, of which there are plenty in Venice. This one is a 15th century building, with some later alterations. It is beautifully constructed and presents an amazingly aesthetic picture both outside and inside. Worth a visit.

Another gem in Venice. Several Tintoretto's, St. Roch and Annunciation amongst others. The Dome and Apse by Il Pordenone, with the Altar by Fantoni. Raise your eyes on leaving to see a wonderful looking organ above you. Very pretty inside and another place to sit...More

We took the time to show our respect to this small house of worship during a day in Venice. Even as a small church in Venice, it was far more grand and ornate inside than most US Churches of any denomination. A relaxing Sunday stop...More

Nothing too fancy about this place, but it is a very nice little church. Nice chapels, artworks and altar piece. Free entrance and no photo restrictions (except flash).

This church is sandwiched between the Santa Maria Gloriosa de Frari and the Scoula Grande di San Rocco. However, this church is less hurried and quieter and contains numerous paintings and statuary. Nice place to get away from the madding crowd.

markets for fish, fruit and vegetables, while shops
display goods from cheese to wine to desserts. San
Silvestro and Rialto Market vaporetto (water taxi)
