Church of St Giovanni in Bragora
A simple, suggestive Gothic style can be admired in this ancient church which dates from the 8th century. The church, which can be found half hidden in a square behind Venice’s main waterfront, the Riva degli Schiavoni, was rebuilt in the 15th century.
A wall plaque near the old baptisimal font attests to it being Antonio Vivaldi’s place of baptism in 1678. Noteworth are two paintings by A. Vivarini and J. Palma il Giovane.
