A little marble jewel, considered one of the most beautiful churches in Venice: an amazing location for suggestive Catholic weddings in Venice.

In 1481 some local citizens and devotees decided to build a votive chapel to house a miracle-working image of the Virgin and child. By the end of 1484 the available funds far exceeded the cost of construction and the original plan was revised and the structure, initially intended as a shrine, was transformed into a monastic institution.

The Church is considered one of the first examples of Renaissance: a single-aisle nave covered by a barrel vault with a projecting chancel covered by a dome. Exterior and interior walls seem carved from the finest marbles.

Pink, grey and white are the colours of the innards of the church.

A painted and gilded barrel vault decorated with 50 paintings of Old Testament prophets, patriarchs and saints forms the ceiling. If you are here when afternoon sun filters through the large round window, the marble decoration seems to come alive with soft pink shades.

The altar is one of the most scenic part: a flight of stairs of step leads to the decorated and tiny area where the painting of the Virgin, said to perform miracles, is treasured.

Thanks to its architecture, its position (close to Ponte Rialto), the possibility to reach the Church by a gondola, we consider this Church one of the most perfect for a Catholic Venice wedding.
