Churches, Venice: 81 reviews and 141 photos
San Marcuola has been founded in the 9th-10th century and dedicated to St. Ermagota and St. Fortunato, but Venetians simply call it Marcuola. The church was famous for housing the right hand of John the Baptist, the one with which he had baptised Christ. San Marcuola was damaged in fire and rebuilt in 1343. The facade was to look very alike that of The Pieta but it remains unfinished above the plinth. The interior is retangular plan with with pair of altars at each corner. There is Tintoretto's "Last Supper" on the left wall of the apse.
The same I wrotte on my previous tip, goes for the church San Marcuola too. It attracted me when passing by, most of all because of its uniqe construction which seems to me like an early Romanesque style. The church is situated on the left bank of Canal Grande.
