Church of St Zaccaria
The design of the Church was first conceived by Gambello to be united harmoniously with St Mark’s basilica. It was built in the 15th century in Gothic style but was then finished by Mauro Codussi (1483 – 90) who added a typically Renaissance facade in white stone.The interior has three naves in columns. It combines Gothic and Renaissance elements with great sobriety.
This church is the home of some famous paintings from the 17th and 18th centuries including that of the Enthroned Madonna and Saints on the main altar piece by Giovanni Bellini (1505).
In the apse of the St Tarasio chapel can be found important frescoes by Andrea del Castagno and Francesco da Faenza (1442); there are also three Gothic polyptychs by Antonio Vivarini e Giovanni d'Alemagna (1443).
