Madonna della Salute

Madonna della Salute

Wednesday November 21st 2018

The Madonna della Salute is probably the least “touristy” of the Venetian festivities and evokes strong religious feelings among the city’s inhabitants.

The holiday is, like the Redentore, in memory of another bout of pestilence, which lasted for two years from 1630- 31, and the subsequent vow by the Doge to obtain the intercession of the Virgin Mary. Even today, thousands of inhabitants visit the main altar of the imposing Salute Church on November 21 to give thanks, and a strong symbolic tie remains between the city and the Virgin Mary.
