The Cathedral of San Moise is a baroque church in Venice.
The temple was originally built in the 8th century, and was completely rebuilt for a certain Moise Venier in X century. Moise wished to dedicate the church to Saint Moses, his heavenly patron. In the 14th century, during the reconstruction work carried out, a bell tower with an arcade was added to the cathedral.
In 1682, the temple was rebuilt by Alessandro Tremignon at the request of the Fini family. The powerful facade was decorated by the sculptor Enrico Meiring.
Above the altar is a painting depicting Moses receiving the Ten Commandments carved out of stone. In the nave of the church are the remains of John Lowe – Scottish financier, as well as a large collection of paintings of the XVII – XVIII centuries. In the chapel on the left side you can see the painting `` Washing of the feet '' brushes by Jacopo Tintoretto and The Last Supper the work of Palma the Younger.
The Church of San Moise, along with other sights of Venice, was included in the UNESCO World Heritage List.
