La basilique des Saints Jean et Paul (connue sous le nom de San Zanipolo, contraction en vénitien de Santi Giovanni e Paolo) est l'un des édifices médiévaux religieux les plus imposants de Venise. Il fait figure de Panthéon de la Sérénissime en raison du grand nombre de doges et d’autres personnages importants qui y furent enterrés à partir du XIIIe siècle. L’église est située sur le campo du même nom dans le sestiere de Castello.
D’après la légende, les origines de la basilique sont liées à une vision du doge Jacopo Tiepolo qui, après avoir rêvé d’un vol de colombes au-dessus d’un espace marécageux, en fit don en 1234 aux dominicains présents dans la ville depuis plus de dix ans. L’église fut alors construite immédiatement. Elle est dédiée à saint Jean et saint Paul, deux obscurs martyrs de l’Église romaine paléochrétienne du VIe siècle.

This was a beautiful unfinished brick style building on a lovely plaza. The most interesting part is being able to see the hospital that is actively used in Venice today.

I entered to attend an evening mass, and was stunned. Who would have guessed that this basilica was so huge, so spacious, so stone-laden inside. The stories of the Bible are told through the various paintings, sculptings, frescoes, and the story of Venice is told in the church's marble-tombed floors, artworks and inscriptions. A moving, Christian, holy site for everyone.

Must see place for all fans of military history. A lot of tombs of many famous medieval military leaders. Many tombs are with the effigies of the knights in the armors of XIV -XV centuries.

A must see place in Venice. It is somehow far from other places but you must visit it. It is a huge church with architectural details totally different from other churches in the city. It is not busy and you can visit ot whenever you want. The neighborhood area is very nice also.

According to legend, the origins of the basilica are connected to a vision of the doge Jacopo Tiepolo, who donated in 1234 the oratory of San Daniele to the Dominican friars, present in the city for over ten years. Immediately the 13th century church was built, dedicated to the Roman martyrs of the fourth century John and Paul. The increase of the activity of the Dominican friars soon imposed an enlargement, which was directed by the two Dominican friars Benvenuto da Bologna and Nicolò da Imola; the yard was closed in 1343, but the embellishment works lasted almost a century: on November 14, 1430, the church was solemnly consecrated. Since then it has been continuously enriched with sepulchral monuments, paintings and sculptures by the major Venetian artists, until in 1806, at the height of the Napoleonic era, the Dominicans were removed from their convent, transformed into a hospital, and the church was deprived of numerous works of art . In the night between 15 and 16 August 1867 a fire burns the Rosary Chapel completely, together with the paintings that were kept there. The restoration of this chapel ends in 1959.

It was fun to walk around the city of Rome and dicover all of the beautiful Basilicas and buildings. It was beautiful on the inside as well as the outside. It was such a treasure in history. We were amazed at the architecture.

Located in Castello it is the principal Dominican church in Venice and one of the largest churches in the city. The first church was built here in 1246 and the present building was completed in 1430. Funeral services for all of Venice's Doges were held here after the 15th century and 25 Doges are buried in the church. The Basilica's chief relic is a foot of Saint Catherine of Siena. Also to be seen here is a miraculous Byzantine icon - Madonna Della Pace. In addition to the 25 Doges there is also a similar number of dignitaries such as artists, poets and military leaders buried here. With all the tombs and monuments in the Basilica the work of all the leading sculptors of the era are to be seen here. There are also some very fine paintings on view by artists such as Giovanni Bellini, Vivarini and Veronese. The Chapel of the Rosary was built in 1582 to commemorate the victory of Lepanto. It contained paintings by Tintoretto, Titian and Palma the Younger which were destroyed in a fire in 1867. The Basilica is situated on the picturesque Campo San Giovanni e Paolo beside Rio dei Mendicanti and the beautiful Scuola Grande do San Marco. The 15th century equestrian statue of Bartolomeo Colleoni is located next to the church. The Campo is one of the largest in Venice and houses a number of busy restaurants.
