We recently spent some time in Venice and visited a dozen or so churches, including the Chiesa di Santa Maria del Giglio which is conveniently located in the San Marco area not too far away from the famous Piazza San Marco, 5-6 minutes walk away.
What we really liked about the chiesa was the nice baroque era facade, which has a Roman Republic sort of feel to it, reminded us of a much smaller version of San Giovanni in Laterno (Rome). Inside the chruch, we liked the Madonna and child with St. John painting by Tintoretto but found little else that really grabbed out attention.
Overall, not sure if we would return to this church or not other than to see the facade. Its biggest problem being its location, in a sea of beauty (Venice) which makes it somewhat difficult to recommend this particular attraction to others that are more interesting, attractive and important. However, as Chiesa di Santa maria del Giglio isn't that far away from where most visitors concentrate their time, Piazza San Marco area, you might be interested in finding this little church for a short visit.
