Introduction

The Madonna dell'Orto is a 14th century Gothic church located in Venice, Italy. Originally the church was dedicated to St. Christopher but the name was later changed in the 15th century when a miraculous statue of the Madonna was found in a nearby orchard. The facade of the structure is in brick and has sloping sides. The entry way is surrounded by a pointed arch with white stone decorations portraying St. Christopher, the Madonna and the Archangel Gabriel created by Nicolo di Giovanni Fiorentino and Antonio Rizzo. The interior includes Tintoretto's paintings The Presentazione di Maria al Tempio, The Martyrdom of St Christopher, The Last Judgment and Il Popolo Ebraico adora il Vitello d'oro.
