What people are saying:

Small buildings in Canare and Europe are hidden in a group of other buildings, with a small but me square in front. Because the architectural design is very unique, I found it at a glance. The appearance is exquisite and simple.

Additional Information

Introduction

This stunning building was built in the Renaissance, but displays traces of successive interventions up until the baroque period. Scuola Grande Arciconfraternita di San Rocco is often used as a concert hall, and is next to the San Rocco Church with which it is often mistaken. It is dedicated to Rocco, who cured the sick during the 14th-century plague. The interior decoration of the school was entrusted to Jacopo Tintoretto, whose works, such as the Allegories, Life and Passion of Christ, and episodes from the Old and New Testaments can be admired. Among the most famous displays are The Annuciation, The Epiphany, and The Flight to Egypt. It is open throughout the year except for a few occasions. The open hours may vary according to the months, so visit the website for details.
