  • The façade of the church is simple with, at the top, a triangular eardrum pierced with an oculus. The left side is flanked by an original porch (sottoportego). The interior is divided, by a double row of medieval-style columns, into 3 asymmetrical naves as the building narrows on the side of the façade. The walls of the central nave are decorated with wooden statues of Francesco TERILLI's 12 Apostles. In the left-left absidian chapel is a large sarcophagus on which rests the statue of Saint Simeon Prophet, the work of Marco ROMANO. To the left of the entrance is a remarkable TINTORET "Supper" (one of the 6 in Venice). Unfortunately, as in SAN CASSIANO, an unkind guard watched all our comings and goings because of the constant ban on taking pictures. This I deplored once again because, without flash, they do not damage and allow to preserve the memory of a beautiful building. I fully understand the need to monitor in order to prevent damage and theft but the number of visitors is so small (some going around in 5 minutes!) that one could allow interested people who devote more than an hour to discover the church to keep testimonies.

  • This church is where you can cross the Scarty Bridge and go straight and turn to your left. There are many saint statues on the walls inside the church. It is a small but relaxing church. Photography inside the church is prohibited.

  • It's a pretty old building. Nothing too amazing
  • Pretty on the outside and nice inside as well!
