Special Events

Located in the narrow strip of land between the Grand Canal and the Port of Saint-Marcone (St Mark) in Venice, the Basilica di Santa Maria della Salute’s architectural style and uniqueness as well as the advantage of its geographical location, makes it one of Italy’s more photogenic churches. In the 17th century, when the Great Plague of Milan spread to Venice, claiming more than a third of the lives there, the surviving Venetians thought that the Blessed Virgin Mary will protect them and thus they built the church in remembrance of her. The main body of the Basilica di Santa Maria della Salute is an octagonal church with a huge dome, surrounded by a chapel. Within the church are many murals created by artists, and it is definitely worth taking the time to stop and admire them.
