Gerhard and Vreni on the Ponte degli Scalsi near the station. Behind us the Grand Canal.
Chiesa di San Geremia.
In the 18th century, architect Carlo Corbellini designed the new cross-domed church on old foundations.
The sacristy served us as a rehearsal room.
The church houses the painting 'Coronation of Venezia' by Jacopo Palma the Younger (1548 - 1628 Venice), also called Palma (il) Giovane.
San Geremia also houses the relics of Santa Lucia.
Saint Lucia lived and died her martyrdom in Syracuse. She was buried there in a church named after her. Her relics were later taken to Constantinople to save them from Muslim occupiers, then in 1204 during the 4th Crusade they were brought to Venice.
