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

Ordinary visitors go to the church and back to the crowd of Venice. Real visitors sit down and admire architecture and paintings and visit monastery, too. It is real pearl with all yards, arcades, trees and gardens. You need enough time and some money for gratuity and for entrance fee to the church. Far more than Palladio and Veronese.

I am with Ruskin in that the Gothic and Romanesque style are better than the Renaissance. However, Palladio did an excellent job designing this church, and the proportions are excellent. Being on Giudecca it has many fewer visitors than the old city, so it is much more peaceful.

Catching a number 2 waterbus will take you to this church. Entrance is €3. The church itself is very attractive and impressive and I really wish I'd left after that, but then we entered the Sacristy...it should come with a warning, because as well as paintings by various artists including Paolo Veronese, on the far wall were about a dozen glass bell jars with the wax heads of assorted Franciscan & Capuchin monks. I'm afraid I thought it rather gruesome and I went to make a quick exit, but not before my husband grabbed me and insisted on showing me the very lifelike gash in the side of one of the heads! It totally unsettled me for the rest of the day.

This church, located on Guidecca, was commissioned to commemorate the 1576 plague which killed 50,000 people. It is a classically designed Palladian church that was built raised above sea level. Admission is included in the Venezia Unica city pass, as well as the church visit Chorus card.
