Campo Santa Maria Formosa. (Open Map)


Rebuilt on a project by M. Codussi in the 2nd half of the 15th Century, the church has a baroque bell tower and two main facades. In the interior are paintings by the school of G. Bellini, a triptych by B. Vivarini and a splendid polyptych by J. Palma il Vecchio which portrays St Barbara, patron saint of the Artillerymen Guild. In the past, in fact, the church was the premises of the Arts and Crafts Guild.
