“At this church, a good reason to walk to this remote northern district, you can pay your final respects to Tintoretto. The brick structure with a Gothic front is famed not only because of its paintings by that artist but also because the great master is buried in the chapel to the right of the main altar. At the high altar are his Last Judgment (on the right) and Sacrifice of the Golden Calf (on the left).”
(Darwin Porter & Danforth Prince, Frommer's Portable Venice, 6th Edition)
