Church "dela Salute"
Venice - Aerial view of the Point and church "della Salute"
Santa Maria della Salute church is supported by over one million timber piles. Beyond the church is Punta della Dogana, upon which stands a 17th century tower crowned by two bronze Atlases supporting a golden globe. From the 15th century onwards, duty on goods arriving from overseas was extracted on this side.
