Madonna dell’Orto (Church)

Madonna dell'Orto (Church)

 Madonna dell’Orto church was built at the half of XIV century and dedicated to Saint Cristopher, when this part of Northern Cannaregio district was still sparsely inhabitated and the landscape was dominated by gardens and kitchen gardens.
After 1377, the church definitely took the name of Madonna dell’Orto, that in Italian means St. Mary from the kitchen garden, when an allegedly miraculous statue of the Virgin was moved here from a private kitchen garden nearby.
Tintoretto’s house is a few metres away, and the painter, who had been working in this church and belonged to this parish, was also buried inside.

Madonna dell’Orto in Venice is open for visits from Monday to Saturday, from 10.00 to 17.00.
