Church of San Zaccaria


San Zaccaria or Saint Zachary or Zachariah or Zechariah or Zacharias was the father of John the Baptist. His body was given to the city of Venice and is now housed in this church. It is worth having a look at the crypt if you are able to - always flooded but impressive.

Beautiful church housing the bodies of 2 saints (Zachariah & Athanasius), an altarpiece by Tiepolo & a flooded crypt

San Zaccaria é uma encantadora mistura de arquitetura gótica e renascentista. O interior pacato contém 'Nossa Senhora e Criança', de Giovanni Bellini, um dos mais belos retábulos de Veneza. Translate

A igreja é calma e encantadora e está repleta de arte, com o destaque para a cripta com seu altar dourado lindíssimo. Os fragmentos do piso em mosaico das igrejas anteriores construídas no mesmo local Translate

La chiesa, fondata nel IX secolo, ha subito negli anni tantissimi rifacimenti ed è per questo che l'aspetto attuale, riassume vari stili architettonici. L'imponente facciata è opera del Codussi. Translate
