Modonna dell'Orto is a church of suggestive beauty, situated in a small quiet campo overlooked by a terracotta facade with a fine Gothic-Renaissance portal. The great Jacopo Tintoretto is buried here, in the chapel on the right of the precbytery. Two of his works hang in the church, along with painting by Cima da Conegliano. The Madonna and Child by Bellini, which used to hang in the Velier chapel, was stolen in 1993.
