Venice church : Santa Maria di Salute was built in 1630 after the great plague hit the city and many people succumbed to it.

In the outlying districts alone 80000 people were killed. The Doge ( ruler of Venice ) and the Senate decided to built a church, Santa Maria di Salute.

This church is magnificent in all aspects. Paintings of Tizian, and other great Venetian artists are displayed today in the sacristy of the church, reached only by a narrow passage.

These paintings are impressive to say the least. One can not take pictures so I am afraid these are missing.
