Sunrise over the Grand Canal and Santa Maria della Salute- Venice, Italy

The church, dedicated to the Virgin Mary, was built in 1630 when the plague that killed about a third of Venetian people was definitively gone. The Salute is a very huge structure built on a octagonal plan and full of Saint Mary’s reference marks.

Inside the church there are many valuable paintings by Tiziano such as “Doctors of the Church and the Evangelists”, “David and Goliath, Abraham and Isaac”, “Petecost” and many others.
