  • The Church of the Redentore is one of the most famous and venerated churches in Venice, and the centrepiece of one of the city’s most deeply felt public celebrations (the Feast of the Redentore, on the third Sunday in July).

    Commissioned by the Senate to honour a vow taken during the terrible plague of 1575-77, the Church was designed by Andrea Palladio and is one of the absolute masterpiece of Renaissance architecture. It was completed after Palladio’s death in 1580 by his foreman Antonio da Ponte, who remained faithful to the original design, represented in the façade with its broken pediments by the half columns and the strong horizontal element that ties its geometry together.

    The church and sacristy abound in important artworks, such as the fine large lunette of the counter-façade by Pietro Vecchia on the subject of “The Virgin Presenting the Blessed Felice di Cantalice to Jesus”, and in the nave and presbytery paintings by Paolo Veronese (and his school), by Jacopo Tintoretto, Francesco Bassano, Paolo Piazza and Jacopo Palma il Giovane.
