Church of San Giovanni in Bragora

Interesting
The elegant brick façade of San Giovanni in Bragora church stands out against the sky. It was in this church that Antonio Vivaldi was baptised in 1678; a copy of his baptism certificate can still be seen here. Artworks of interest in the church include a superb painting by Cima da Conegliano, The Baptism of Jesus, in the central chapel; a magnificent Resurrection of Christ by Alvise Vivarini; and a Madonna and Child by Alvise's uncle, Bartolomeo Vivarini.
