Book Venice Hotels Book Venice Holiday Packages

As you stand outside the church, you would find the church looks rather simple as compared to other magnificent structures that are built in the town. However, once you step inside, you would be in awe of the Italian Renaissance architecture. Dedicated to the Assumption of Mary, the church boasts of the only rood screen at the centre (choir screen) that is found in Venice.

  The painting of Titian's Assumption of 1518 that is placed over the altar is quite stunning. Many small chapels are also found here that are adorned with beautiful artwork. Apart from that, a pyramid-like structure was created by Antonio Canova on the left aisle. Noted artist, Titian was buried inside the church and a massive tomb has been created for the same.
