Overview

The only building on the San Giorgio Maggiore island, this church was built in 1566. It is built inside a Benedictine monastery (that was erected in 1000) in accordance with a plan by Andrea Palladio. The bright interior is covered with paintings by Carpaccio and Tintoretto, such as The Last Supper and the Raccolta della Manna. From the bell tower, there is a magnificent view of San Marco. Mass (with Gregorian chants) is held every sunday at 11a.

  The view from the tower of what was once Yugoslavia (now Croatia) is absolutely beautiful and unforgetable. A must do on a trip to Venice
