Overview

This 17th-century church was built with the co-operation and the imagination of Massari, Morlaiter and Tiepolo. The interior is very bright and has only one Nave, with three chapels and sculptures by Morlaiter and a unique harmony between the architecture, sculpture, painting and wooden furniture. Beside the third altar is Tintoretto's Crocifissione, and in the first altar Tiepolo's Tre Sante. The ceiling is divided into three parts and decorated with paintings by Tiepolo. They represent the life of San Domenico and the Institution of the Rosario.
