Churches of Venice: Basilica di Santa Maria della Salute

We recently showed our readers some beautiful photographs of St. Mark's in Venice and I am pleased that the same photographer, M.P. O'Brien, who provided those, also sent in to us some photos of another beautiful Venetian basilica, that of Santa Maria della Salute which was built and consecrated within the 17th century.

But first, an exterior photo by another photographer, which will give you a sense of the setting of the basilica -- and the lovely city of Venice itself.
