by Sasha.M

S. Maria Della Salute, masterpiece of Baroque art ,was completed by Baldassare Longhena in the 17th. century.The renown of the basilica arises both from its wonderful site,dominating the entrance to the Grand canal and also form the architect's skilful manipulation of volumes and spaces and picturesque steps wich rise out of the water up to the level of the curch itself.Serbian poet Laza Kostic wrote the poem about this church.
