Built in 16th century by famous architect Andrea Palladio, Il Redentore is a Roman Catholic church which is located on a beautiful waterfront, the Grand Canal in Venice. Although Palladio has created many structures before but this church is considered to be one of his magnificent creation. A beautiful white building adorned by the statue of Redeemer. Some people also believe that the architecture of this church has some Turkish influences as well owing to the campaniles which appear like minarets.

As you step inside the church, you would see beautiful paintings by Tintoretto, Paolo Veronese and Francesco Bassano. The church has a white and grey interior along with a domed crossing. You will also find Franciscans’ wax heads that were moulded in 1710.
