Plain exterior but the interior hides a hidden gem. The ceiling houses the largest oil painting in the world. Pay the $2 euro to see it with lighting.

If you see a church in Italy – go in. We are forever amazed at what we find when we enter a church. This church is very plain on the outside; but, wait till you get inside. San Pantalon was built in the 16th century...More

You would never think that this abandoned-looking church housed anything beyond pigeons but you would be wrong. It's free to see the biggest canvas painting in the world, on the ceiling, depicting the Martyrdom and Apotheosis of St Pantalon, painted by Giovanni Antonio Fumiani.

Interesting neighbourhood. A bit off the beaten path. Outside is rather obscure. But inside. Incredible Fresques. And it's free to visit. Maybe not must see. But if you are walking around - come and check out.

Don’t let the outside fool you, it’s the most inconspicuous of churches but wow what a hidden gem! The ceiling is a great work of art worthy of a detour!

Beautiful ceiling, the artwork is breathtaking. Certainly worth a visit. €1 to light the ceiling is certainly worth it.

The church is open all day but avoid the times when church services are on. Have some change ready for the light machines. Enjoy!
