Church of Sant'Alvise Interesting : Michelin's recommendations

You must enter this church devoted to Saint Louis of Anjou (Alvise is the Venetian version of Louis), son of the King of Naples, Charles II, who rejected the throne to enter the orders, and died as Archbishop of Toulouse... at 23 years old. The relationship with Venice? He appeared in the dreams of a local noble woman. On the flat ceiling, you will see the frescoes by Antonio Torri and Pietro Ricchi which are a fascinating trompe-l'oeil. Numerous paintings including three by Tiepolo.
