One of the least crowded areas to visit. It was beautiful and great to get away from the hustle and bustle of this the very touristy areas for a while. The architecture is stunning and it's difficult to appreciate the sheer scale of the church without seeing it for yourself. Simply lovely.

When Venice experienced an unusually devastating outbreak of the plague in 1630,as a votive offering for the city's deliverance from the pestilence, the Republic of Venice vowed to build and dedicate a church to Our Lady of Health. This impressive church is well located and the views from there are spectacular. This is also an area not full of tourists, so it is possible to have some quality time admiring the landscape and the works inside.

Very beautiful building right on the edge of Venice. Beautiful views from all directions as well.

Great attraction,lots to do there especially buy the ticket to go at the roof top and be careful from the people at the entrance playing magic tricks and giving you Jamaican bands as they can rip you off in seconds and you wont even notice what happen with in seconds.

Beautiful church with the base in the form of an octagon. This church catches the eye from the main Venice island and is reachable either by ferry or by a bridge a little away from the St. Mark's square. Pretty good from the inside as well. The location is very nice...right at the tip of the small triangular island.

Gorgeous church in a secluded but scenic location. Definitely worth visiting. The inside is very quiet and peaceful unlike San Marco basilica. The artwork is beautiful and easy to sit and admire. Free entry too. It's also worth visiting at night to hear the bells play.

A great place to get away from the hurly-burley of daytime Venice. Accessible by ferry - which at 2€ is by far the cheapest and quickest way to reach the Basilica - entry is free, although there was a man outside with a collection box. Inside it is cool and And crowded with strategically placed benches for you to sit and enjoy the spectacular architecture. Its 2€ to go into the sacristy, but we didn’t bother having been disenchanted by our visit to San Marco. I regret the decision as it houses several paintings by Titian apparently. Combine the visit with a trip to the Peggy Guggenheim gallery, just a hundred metres or so away and you’ll have an excellent half day.

Exllant architecture structure at Venice. Evening time is the best for visit and photography. You can take opposite side of the canal for photography.

Beautiful octagonal church offering a quiet retreat from the hustle and bustle of Venice. The sacristy boasts many paintings for the low price of €2. The steps outside offer a shady afternoon place to sit and watch the world go by.
