  • This is one of the most important landmarks of Venetian art, housing the most extraordinary body of works by Paolo Caliari, better known as Il Veronese.

    The church, founded in the fifteenth century by the confraternity the Padri Gerolimini, was expanded and renovated in 1506 under the direction of Antonio Abbondi, known as Lo Scarpagnino, who turned the orientation of the church towards the canal.

    More important than the architecture of the church is its magnificent cycle of paintings by Paolo Veronese, undoubtedly the grandest and most significant undertaking by the artist in the course of his entire lifetime. The church, a true mausoleum of Veronese, also houses the mortal remains of this great artist (to the left of the presbytery).

    Other paintings worthy of note include works by Bonifacio de’ Pitati and the school of Tintoretto in the sacristy; in the church, in particular, the fine “San Nicolò” by Titian, and works by Paris Bordone, Jacopo Sansovino, Jacopo Palma il GIovane and Alessandro Vittoria.
