Chiesa di Santa Maria del Giglio is one of our favourite churches in Venice! It is impressive and full of beautiful decorations. We are a little bit into art and architecture, so we could tell from the first sight that the church was built in our favourite, baroque architectural style. It is so beautiful! We love every details of Santa Maria Zobenigo.
The Chiesa di Santa Maria del Giglio, otherwise known as Santa Maria Zobenigo, resides in a surprisingly quiet area west of the Piazza San Marco. The church has what is considered one of the finest baroque facades in Venice. The church was founded in the 9th century but was rebuilt between 1678 and 1681. I didn't have the opportunity to go in the church as it was closed when we arrived but the facade truly is spectacular and is definitely worth seeing, especially as it's a great escape from the more overwhelmingly touristy areas.
