San Zaccaria

The church of San Zaccaria, founded in the 9th Century, has undergone so many face-lifts over the centuries that it now contains many architectural styles. The current imposing façade with its Renaissance elements by Gabello and Mauro Codussi dates from the late 1400s. A statue of St. Zachariah sits above the main entrance. The brick bell-tower is from the 10th Century. The church has three columned naves and contains several works of art: an altarpiece by Giovanni Bellini dated 1505 and many painting portraying religious scenes and moments in Venice’s history.

Napoleonic edicts suppressed the convent next to the church. The convent used to welcome the daughters of the richest and most noble Venetian families, though it was somewhat permissive, as many of the young noble nuns entered without having any religious vocation, as was often the custom in those times.
