A Tribute to the Plague

This history-laden basilica is a fantastic example of Baroque religious architecture. After a massive outbreak of the bubonic plague began to devastate Venice in 1630, the city vowed to try anything it could to stop the illness. One of these attempts was with the commissioning of a grand church dedicated to the healing power of St. Mary. Though many died in the outbreak, the Salute cathedral remains a testament to Italian Christianity during the 17th century, and is still a gorgeous place of worship for native Venetians.
