Museo Diocesano di Arte Sacra review 1 Users say 5/5 Rate it

This museum is situated in the ex-monastery of Sant'Apollonia, whose Romanesque cloisters are unique in Venice; even if you don't have time to view the museum itself, it is worth paying the single euro for admission to the cloisters. The museum, which is in the process of being enlarged, contains a number of works of art and clerical artefacts (reliquaries, chalices, missals, crucifixes) from suppressed churches and monasteries. The first room is notable for two energetic paintings by Luca Giordano (Christ and the Money-Lenders, Massacre of the Innocents). From the church of San Donato there is a fine altarpiece by Paolo Veneziano, San Donato e Devoti, with the saint in relief, in gilded and painted wood.
