History

In 1577, construction of the church was begun in response to the plague that ended in 1576. Andrea Palladio and Antonio da Ponte were the lead architects and completed the church in 1592. This church is considered one of the most splendid and harmonious religious works by Palladio. The façade is simplistic in shape, containing many columns and a large dome at the transept of the cross. Every July, a pontoon bridge is constructed across the Giudecca canal connecting San Redentore with the Church of Santa Maria della Salute. Both churches were built to signify the end of the plague, and this celebration is held to commemorate those who died.
