One of the religious buildings in Venice, Scuola Grande Dei Carmini is also home of the Venetian Scuola. Designed by Baldassare Longhena and Francesco Caustello, this school of charity is dedicated to Our Lady of Mt. Carmel. Today, the chapel has a wooden roof along with an altarpiece of Virgin of the Carmelo. The building also boasts of wall paintings by Giustino Menescardi including Martyrdom of Brothers Maccabe  and  Abigail placates David's designs against her husband Nabal .

The interiors of the building are quite extravagant. While you are here, don’t miss seeing the gold-leafed stucco stairway to heaven and the nine-panel ceiling of a rosy Virgin in Glory. The building was also home to some wandering travellers during the 13th century but today the building is host to some of the concerts and often organises charity works.
