Santa Maria della Salute is a cathedral in Dorsoduro, Venice, constructed in the mid 1600s to mark the city’s recovery from the black plague. Its location near Piazza San Marco and majestic dome make it an integral part of the city’s skyline, possibly even one of the most recognizable ones. Beside it sits the Dogana di Mare, or the Sea Customs Post. Two Atlases (I don’t know why there are two- artistic license I suppose) hold up a bronze globe, on which another statue stands as a weathervane.
Here, I’ve captured both with the multitudes of lagoon poles that are all over Venice.
