Venice Tourist Attractions: Campo dei Santi Giovanni e Paolo - Campo dei San Giovanni e Paolo, Venice
This square is full of many popular Venice attractions and used to be known as the Campo delle Maravege (marvels). It features an imposing sculpture - Monumento di Bartolomeo Colleoni - which stands in the square and was created by Verrocchio. Also nearby is the church of Santi Giovanni e Paolo, which was founded by the Dominicans in 1246. Construction of the present church actually began in 1333 and was finally completed almost 100 years later. It was restored in the 1920s and the large interior is home to many monuments.

The Ciesa di Santa Maria della Salute is a very individual and beautiful octagonal church, built partly of 'marmorino', a brick covered with marble dust. It was constructed between 1631 to 1681 in thanksgiving after Venice began to recover from the great plague of 1630 to 1631. It was designed by Longhena and has an enormous white dome and very grand baroque- style architecture.
