Church of Santa Maria dei Derelitti (or of the Ospedaletto)

Santa Maria dei DerelittiThis church was designed in 1575 by Andrea Palladio  and occupies space where a hospital once welcomed the poor and infirm. It can be found between the churches of  SS. Giovanni e Paolo e S. Francesco della Vigna. The hospital church, thanks to generous donations from benefactors, has an opulent facade and collection of works of art from the 1600s and 1700s.

The architect Baldassare Longhena is responsible for the façade and altars.  The church is home to works of art by Jacopo Palma il Giovane and G.B. Tiepolo. Worthy of note is a ‘golden organ’  enriched with sculptures and multi–coloured decorations.
