You can see this church far away from the boat. The Redentore Church is a Renaissance-style church on Jutica Island. It was built to pray for the Black Death and was built at the end of the epidemic. You can still see it The bits and pieces of the previous era.
A white church commemorating the Black Death. There are very few tourists on the island of Dhaka, and this church is even less interesting. At that time, I was tired from walking and went to the church to rest. I fell asleep in the warm sunshine that came in in the afternoon.
A beautiful church to visit, with great historical significance and tradition in Venice. Each year in the third weekend in July, there is a festival to commemorate the ending of the Bubonic Plague in the 1500's here, and a bridge made of barges is built from mainland Venice to Giudecca.

This votive Church was built in the late sixteenth century, and by votive I mean this Church was dedicated in fullfillment of a vow. In 1575 Venice was decimated by the plague, losing almost 40% of it's population. The Venice governmnent decided to build a Church for those that perished. It was built by the great Palladio!
Redentore is a church located on the island of Giudecca in the Venetian lagoon. It is across the lagoon from Santa Maria della Saluta and is considered part of the Dorsoduro sestieri. A ride on the vaporetto or taxi is required to access Giudecca. The church features paintings by many famous artists, including Tintoretto.
Other than the 'fiesta del redentore' that happens in July, featuring a wooden bridge linking Venice to Giudecca and fireworks, that Palladian church has nothing more to see than any of the many churches out there in Venice.
