Trip Planner: Europe / Italy / Veneto / Province of Venice / City of Venice / Venice / Chiesa della Madonna dell'Orto
Regarded as one of the finest Gothic churches in Venice, Chiesa della Madonna dell'Orto contains notable paintings by Tintoretto, as well as the artist's tomb. Constructed in the 14th century on the site of a much earlier religious structure, the church has served as a gunpowder storeroom, barn, and stable over the course of more than six centuries. Often overlooked by foreign visitors, the building features a brick facade divided by columns and accented by mullioned windows. Pay close attention to the right nave, where you can see a well-known painting of the Virgin Mary, which Tintoretto created in the 1550s.

Chiesa della Madonna dell'Orto Reviews
This church is a little away from the centre and from the outside doesn't seem that different to many others. Don't be fooled however, for here is one of the major achievements along with his tomb... more »
This is a must see for anyone who like Tintoretto. The church itself is beautiful- 15th century - and contains absolutely beautiful paintings. It’s so peaceful and simply beautiful. Can say no more... more »
Easy to underestimate from the outside and it is absolutely beautiful on the inside. Somewhere worth visiting if you are on holiday, staying nearby.
Tintoretto is buried here. Lovely cool air church. Beautiful Cloisters .Off the beaten track.
