Santi Giovanni e Paolo

Basilica dei Santi Giovanni e Paolo - VeneziaMore commonly known as San Zanipolo, Santi Giovanni e Paolo is second only to the Frari as the city’s great Gothic church. Built in the late-13th to early-14th centuries by Dominican friars, it is striking for its enormous dimensions and architecture.

Known as the Pantheon of Venice, Santi Giovanni e Paolo houses monuments to no less than 25 doges. Many of these are outstanding works executed by the Lombardi family and other leading sculptors of the day.

Adjacent to the church is the Scuola Grande di San Marco with its impressive façade. This was once one of the largest craft institutions in Venice and is a masterpiece of Venetian Renaissance architecture. It is now part of Venice’s Ospedale Civile.
