Experience Chiesa del Santissimo Redentore: A Religious Gem in Venice

Visit the Chiesa del Santissimo Redentore in Venice Free entry to the Chiesa del Santissimo Redentore with the Venice City Pass

The Chiesa del Santissimo Redentore is a church that was built as a sign of gratitude to God for the end of the plague of 1577. It is for the same reason that the Redentore Festival exists, which takes place annually on the third Sunday of July. The church was built in the likeness of ancient Greek temples and is considered a masterwork of Renaissance architecture. In contrast to its ostentatious exterior, the interior of the chuch is very simple. The three chapels in the church are homes to paintings like the “Birth of Christ” by Francesco Bassano, “Baptism of Jesus” by Paolo Veranese, and the “Flagellation of Christ” by Tintoretto.

Your Ticket to the Chiesa del Santissimo Redentore is included for free in the Venice City Pass. 

Chiesa del Santissimo Redentore: Church of the Most Holy Redeemer

The Chiesa del Santissimo Redentore, also known as the Church of the Most Holy Redeemer, is a well-known church in Venice, Italy. It was built in the 16th century and stands as a prominent example of Venetian Renaissance architecture. The church was designed by the renowned architect Andrea Palladio and is one of his most significant works.

The Chiesa del Santissimo Redentore was constructed in 1577 to fulfill a vow made by the city of Venice to save it from the plague. The church's facade is classically Palladian, featuring an elegant columned portico and a pediment. The interior of the church is equally impressive, adorned with rich decoration, altars, and paintings by various artists, including Titian.

Attracting visitors from around the world, the Chiesa del Santissimo Redentore is a significant cultural and religious landmark in Venice.
