The huge building of the church Santa Maria della Salute, coloquialy called "Chiesa della Salute", is one of the landmarks of the town. It is situated along Canal Grande, in Doesoduro.
The church was comissioned by the Senate of the Venetian Republic after the plaque in 1630. On each September 21st, the Venetians come to visit the church with lighting candles, which makes spectacular scene in the twilight.
