Church of St Giovanni in Bragora

Chiesa BragoraA 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.

It has a magnificent painting above the main altar of Christ’s Baptism by Cima da Conegliano
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.
