travel italy veneto venice church of san francesco della vigna

The Church of San Francesco Della Vigna is a Catholic church in the Renaissnce style located in the Costello district of Venice.
It was built for the Franciscans and completed in 1554.
Attached to the Church is a Convent made up of two cloisters.
The church and convent are interesting as a historical reference point, but, to me, nothing special architecturally.

ARCHITECT: ADREA PALLADIO and JACOPO SANSOVINO
