This 16th-century Benedictine basilica sits on the island that shares its name. It’s beautiful: classical renaissance, white marble, with a proud bell tower, right in the middle of a blue lagoon. The first church here was built in the late 8th century. Palladio designed the current building, but died before he could see his completed project in 1610. The monks by and large controlled decoration of the church, so it’s not over-opulent. Highlights are:
- Tintoretto’s The Last Supper and The Fall of Manna and the Entombment of Christ.
- The Chapel of the Dead.
- Virgin and Child with Saints by Sebastiano Ricci.
- Altarpiece by Jacopo and Domenico Tintoretto of the Risen Christ and St Andrew with Vincenzo Morosini and family.
- Jacopo and Domenico Tintoretto’s painting of the Coronation of the Virgin with Saints.
- Adoration of the Shepherds by Jacopo Bassano.
- Miracle of the immobility of Santa Lucia by Leandro Bassano.
The view from the bell tower is supposed to be fantastic. Church Of San Giorgio Maggiore also included in 3 days trip to Venice itinerary.
