Island of San Giorgio Maggiore, Venice, Italy
2 years ago
Chiesa di San Giorgio Maggiore is a 16th-century Benedictine church conceptualized by Venetian architect Andrea Palladio. Spot it from Riva degli Schiavoni, the promenade across the lagoon, and gaze at the brilliant white marble edifice as it reflects on the sparkling cerulean waters. A trip to the monastery spoils you with two of Italian painter Jacopo Tintoretto’s most celebrated works: “The Last Supper” and “The Fall of the Manna.”

Going to a place like to this kind of church makes me feel so worthwhile and loved.

Originally, the cathedral was just a simple parish church in Manila until upon the issuance of a papal bull by Pope Gregory XIII, it became a separate diocese altogether. The Manila Cathedral is dedicated to the Immaculate Conception, which is one of the titles for the Blessed Virgin Mary. It’s also a venue for masses held by popes, Blessed Paul VI and St. John Paul being one of the few. If you’re interested to learn more about the cathedral, you can request for a tour on their website!
