There are many churches in Venice, and the crowds seem drawn to the same ones. We stumbled into this church and were glad we did. It has some impressive art, and despite the on going works, there is much to appreciate. However, the real joy...More

Was there on 10 Apr 2017. Was disappointed that the external facade was undergoing renovation. Some parts of its interior was also cordoned off. Wasted the time going there!
