Time Out says

Impressive works by Giovanni Bellini and Tintoretto.

Behind its unspectacular façade, the church of San Pietro Martire conceals an important work by Giovanni Bellini, backed by a marvellous landscape: ‘The Virgin and Child Enthroned with St Mark, St Augustine and Doge Agostino Barbarigo’. There is also a Tintoretto Baptism, two works by Veronese and his assistants and an ornate altarpiece by Salviati, which is lit up by the early morning sun. The sacristy (offering of €1.50) contains remarkable wood-carvings from the 17th century and a small museum of reliquaries and other ornaments.
