Venice is home to some of the most beautiful churches, architecture and waterfronts. There are so many photos of Venice that I want to post on my blog that I don’t even know where to begin. I’ve tried to sort everything into three posts however I had a set of photos at this particular church that I thought looked best on its own. Every day in Venice, we would catch the water bus (or vaporetto) at a station in front of this majestic baroque building – Santa Maria Della Salute. When you ride the waters up and down the grand canal, it’s was the most beautiful sight. It’s octagonal shape and picturesque bell towers on top always stood out against the pastel coloured dwellings. Santa Maria Della Salute is a roman catholic church built in the 1600s after the black plague and was a dedication to Saint Mary – the lady of health. When you enter the building, you can see references to the plague via the statues erected inside. For those visiting Venice, it’s definitely a worthy stopover that’s just two stops from Piazza San Marco (not that you would miss such a big church!) and is also at the same stop as the Peggy Guggenheim museum :-) Stay tuned for the visual travel diary/ies next!
