Artist's Description

Le Zitelle (officially Santa Maria della Presentazione) is a church in Venice, Italy. It is part of a former complex which gave shelter to young maidens who had no dowry (“zitelle” in Italian), and is located in the easternmost part of Giudecca Island.

Generally attributed to Andrea Palladio, the original design dates to 1579-1580 and the construction to 1586. Its housing edifice surrounds the church in a horseshoe shape, with a court behind the apse. The façade has two orders, surmounted by a tympanum and flanked by two small bell towers. The church has a large dome with a lantern.

The interior is on the central plan, it houses works by Aliense, Leandro Bassano and Palma il Giovane.

No longer used as a church, the building now houses the five star Bauer Palladio Hotel & Spa, run by the Bauer Hotel Group.

The whole of Venice and its Lagoon is designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
