San Vidal Church
Doge Vitale Falier wanted to dedicate this church to his homonym at the end of eleventh century but the facade tells us a more recent restoration (seventeenth century) realized following a classical project by architect Gaspari with the funds left by the Doge Carlo Contarini. The Church has just one nave with a vault ceiling and keeps inside paintings of seventeenth century and by Pellegrini and Piazzetta and in the presbitery, at the back, San Vitale a cavallo and Quattro Santi adorano la Vergine col putto (San Vitale riding a horse and Four Saints adoring the Virgin with the cupid), by Vittore Carpaccio.
