Venice, September 2013

“The church was built using the number three, a reference to the Holy Trinity, as an important design element. The interior has the splendid painting by Antonio Falier da Negroponte, Madonna and Child, a stunning transition piece between the Gothic and the Renaissance styles, as well as other works by Giorgione, Vivarini and Giovanni Bellini. The vineyards after which the church is named are unfortunately closed to the public, but the cloister is open.”
