Campo San Rocco. (Open Map)


The Scuola displays an important series of paintings by Jacopo Tintoretto.
Built in the first half of the 16th C, the Guildhall of San Rocco is the home of an extraordinary cycle of canvases by J. Tintoretto, among which eight on the ground floor portray Scenes from the New Testament. 
Tintoretto dedicated scenes taken from the Old Testament to the ceiling of the Upper Hall, while on the walls the cycle of paintings includes the great painter’s self-portrait.
