The Chiesa del Santissimo Redentore (English: Church of the Most Holy Redeemer), commonly known as Il Redentore, is a 16th-century Roman Catholic church located in the Dorsoduro sestiere of the Italian city of Venice. It was designed by the architect Andrea Palladio and built as a votive church to thank God for the deliverance of the city from a major outbreak of the plague. Located on the waterfront of the Canale della Giudecca, it dominates the skyline of the island of Giudecca. It is a member of the Chorus Association of Venetian churches and contains a number of paintings by artists including Tintoretto, Paolo Veronese and Francesco Bassano.

Such lovely light to enhance such beautiful architecture. I like the soft tones and quiet mood. Good clarity and detail to give credit to these buildings.

Particolare il sole che illumina soltanto il dietro della Chiesa mentre le case in basso si preparano giÓ alla notte. Scatto molto carino, bellissima come sempre la nostra amata Venezia!
