The white facade of this church is almost radiant. Its interior is bright and airy, decorated with a few paintings, mostly by Tintoretto. The charming renaissance building was finished by the beginning of the 17th century. Do not hesitate and get all the way up to the bell tower from where you can enjoy a lovely view of the city.
