Chiesa della Madonna dell’Orto

Built in the middle of the 1300s in the Gothic style by Fra Tiberio of Parma, originally the church was called San Cristofaro, but the installation in the church of an ancient miraculous image of the Madonna which had been found in an orto, or vegetable garden, the name was changed to Madonna dell’Orto. It was rebuilt in the 15th century, the work continuing for the whole of the century, and the church became the one of the greatest expressions of the Venetian Gothic. From the facade rise pinnacles carrying statues of the 12 apostles by Delle Masegne. The interior, with 3 naves, contains many pictorial works by Jacopo Tintoretto, who was also a parishioner of Madonna dell’Orto, and also his tomb. Another notable work is “The Madonna with Child and Saints”, by Cima da Conegliano.
