Most beautiful from a distance but the interior is worth a quick visit if you are passing by.

Santa Maria della Salute (English: Saint Mary of Health), commonly known as the Salute, is a Roman Catholic church and minor basilica located in the Dorsoduro sestiere of Venice. It sits on a narrow finger of land between the Grand Canal and the Bacino di San Marco making the church an iconic sight when entering the Piazza San Marco from the water.

The church was designed by Longhena and contains some early Titian paintings.

Santa Maria della Salute, or as most Italians in Venice refer to it, La Salute, is a Roman Catholic Basilica built to honor the thousands of Venetians (Venice lost a third of it's population) who were killed during the outbreak of the Black Plague in 1631. The construction on the Salute started a year after the plague end, and over the years has become an important part of the Venezian skyline. One can't help but feel goosebumps when entering the Grand Canal and seeing that majestic structure on the left hand side.
