The Salute Palace is located right in the heart of the so-called “Museum Mile”, in the Dorsoduro neighbourhood, surrounded by art galleries, museums and frescoed churches. Our Home is characterised by a warm and welcoming refined Venetian style, which combines precious wood and more contemporary essential furniture.
The Palace, with its uniquely striking features, lies in the core of a culturally vivid area surrounded by art galleries, museums and churches. Some of the area’s notable landmarks, just a few steps away, include Santa Maria della Salute Basilica, the Peggy Guggenheim Foundation - European and American modern art collection - the Accademia Bridge and the Accademia Galleries - a collection of masterpieces of Venetian painting up to the 18th century.
A bit of history
The Salute Palace Hotel takes its name after the Madonna della Salute (Our Lady of Health) Basilica, a true and majestic testimony of art and religious faith. Designed by Baldassarre Longhena and consecrated in 1687, the Basilica was built as a token of thanksgiving to Virgin Mary at the end of one of the worst plagues ever, that in 1630. For over 3 centuries, every year on November 21, the city has celebrated the Feast of Madonna della Salute, a celebration the Venetians still feel as a very important one. A temporary wooden bridge on pontoons makes it possible to reach the church easily so that believers can pay their homage.
