Interesting and impressive huge Gothic Church with fine paintings and tombs of many Doges. You can also find an altar with Santa Catharina's foot!

Worth a visit, quite busy when we went which is not always the best time to visit. Interesting and spectacular though and enjoyed going around it.

I loved the outside, very pretty, in a very pleasant square with a few cafés and benches. not overcrowded. There was a fee to enter. This seems incorrect for a religious building.

A very unique and impressive Basilica that definitely worth visiting when in Venice. Cost €3.50 to enter, well worth it. Doesn't seem much from the outside (it is next to a hospital which has a beautiful lobby), but the inside is impressive and contains valuable...More

After dining nearby we heard music coming from the church. We entered through a open side door and were treated to a free concert of the Harrow Young Musicians Philharmonic (from England)! They were great and the setting wonderful.
