Beeindruckende Aussenansicht der Kirche Basilica di San Pietro di Castello in Venedig

This former bishop church, Basilica di San Pietro di Castello, is located away from the hustle on the San Pietro di Castello island. This church is the only church in Venice whose tower is completely adorned by marble. The interior of the church is also just as majestic—an especially interesting piece is its main alter, which is made from multicolored marble and is used to store the ashes of the first pastor, Lorenzo Giustinioni. Additionally, the church is also home to the masterwork    „Condemnation of the Snakes“ by Pietro Liberi as well as to a unique cross made out of wood and copper.
