There is a crack on the church caused by an earthquake but the church is stil stable. Step inside for a spectacular experience, the painting on the ceiling as beautiful, well worth a visit.

We were really looking forward to going to St. Patalon and seeing Vivarini's Coronation of the Virgin. It is a veritable who's who of the saint world. Unfortunately it was out on loan to an exhibition at the Accademia so we missed it. They have...More

Don't miss the unbelievable ceiling painting on the inside of this church! We learned on a Venice Free Tours that all the money needed to finish the front of the church went to the painting on the inside. You are not allowed to take pictures...More

Loved the frescoes by Longhi that are in a tucked away chapel. The ceiling was really incredible but was a story not known to us.

came on this church by chance and popped in. I was blown away by the most amazing ceiling, the painting and art work is awesome. TIP pop into any church you find that is open, you wont be dissapointed

The Ceiling Painting is Extraordinary. I walked all the way from the San Lucia Train Station to see San Pantalon. It was worth it.

When we went in we thought it would be same as other churches. The frescos that cover the entire ceiling is darker then others but very beautiful.

A very unassuming outside facade but boy does the ceiling inside make up for it. It is the most stunningly beautiful work of art and a 'must visit' whilst in Venice. Do not miss!

The ceiling is spectacular. You will need coins to light it. The person inside will have coins. Be aware you can not take photos!!! They watch you like a hawk for it.

Artsy is the defining mood of this neighborhood with
street artists, students, painters, sculptors,
restorers, curators, historians, collectors, heirs and
heiresses rubbing elbows. Peggy Guggenheim's
collection, now a museum, lures chic locals for
evening art aperitifs. Traditionalists and visionaries
cocoon in bohemian luxury. La Salute basilica
buttresses the neighborhood to the east. Gondolas bob

The church is open all day but avoid the times when church services are on. Have some change ready for the light machines. Enjoy!
