Basilica di Santa Maria della Salute, Venice: 73 reviews and 132 photos
This to me is the most impressive sight in venice. Travelling down Grand Canal towards the Santa Maria della Salute.
This church is located in the Dorsoduro area at the mouth of the Grand canal.
It was built for thanksgiving for the cities deliverance from the plague in 1630.
On the 21st of November each year the Festa della salute takes place where locals light candles and cross an erected pontoon bridge across the canal to give thanks for a years goods health.
Address: Tip of Dorsoduro district
