Basilica di Santa Maria della Salute

Venice, Italy
4.9 / 7
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.

Beautiful, didn't have a chance to go inside. Not sure if you can but it's located in a perfect location facing the canal and the ferry.


In addition to the majestic beauty of the Basilica the psychological and spiritual comfort of being in its presence is overwhelming. I highly recommend the pamphlet I got from the Basilica title “prayers to Mary”with a picture of the Madonna in Chris.. Read more »
