Palazzi di Giudecca

Among the hidden pearls of the Giudecca there are its palaces, a urban discovery - be them ancient or modern ones. Some of the most famous architects in the world worked in the island, in past times and in the last century, including the religious architecture by Andrea Palladio (the SS.Redentore Basilica - the Redeemer's - and the Zitelle church).
