Chiesa di San Sebastiano, Venice

4.4
Discover notable works by Paolo Veronese at Chiesa di San Sebastiano, which is filled with paintings, ceiling canvases, and frescoes by the Renaissance artist. One of Venice's "plague churches" constructed to placate divine punishment sent in the form of pestilence, this structure also houses several works by Tintoretto and Titian. Its plain facade belies an abundance of artistic masterpieces inside, created by some of Italy's most celebrated painters. Pay special attention to Veronese's paintings near the altar, in which a bound Saint Sebastian confronts his tormentors. Before you leave, pay homage to Veronese by visiting his tomb, located just left of the presbytery.

  • Beautiful church, one of the best in Venice. It's a shame it was under construction and we didn't see it right. The fresh ones were the best.

  • The bell tower in a quiet place, which was a little bit from the river Satele, was a landmark church, so I had heard that there are many pictures of Veronese, but I did not know it so much. The interior is also decorated in white, and the ceiling is "an ester of the Queen's Crown to Ahmueros", the "Glorious Madonna and Saints" in the rear altar, the door of the pipe organ "temple worship of the Infant Christ", and the Holy fixture room which enters from there is a ceiling It was filled with the picture of Veronese including "Crowning of the Virgin". The picture of Veronese was very beautiful because of its beautiful colors, and I felt it very much in the white church.
