In Zattere district, the ‘700 church by Giorgio Masari overlooks the Giudecca Canal with a great spectacular effect. In its interior, there are Tiepolo’s works, rococo sculptures and a gorgeous altarpiece by Piazzetta.
The Church of Gesuati, the biggest example of cloister of 18th century in Venice, was built between 1726 and 1736 for the Dominican order, to replace the little church that still nowadays rises beside it, becoming too small for its faithful. The Palladian façade is divided into three parts of Corinthian columns.
