Basilica di Santa Maria della Salute

Venice, Italy
4.9 / 8
The church appeared as thanks to the Almighty for the deliverance of Venice from the terrible plague epidemic in the XVII century. The disease claimed tens of thousands of lives (more than a third of the city’s population in those centuries). The construction of the cathedral lasted 50 years; for stability, countless wooden beams were driven under its foundation. The temple is located opposite the Doge's Palace in the main city square of St. Mark.

An iconic church of Venice. Beautiful from outside. No absolute need to visit the interior.
