In the Dorsoduro district, the Salute Palace Hotel is located in the sophisticated area called "Museum Mile" among art galleries, museums and frescoed churches.
The warm welcome of wood, mitigated by the white furnishings of the contemporary-style rooms leads to the style of the Salute Palace Hotel.
A typical Venetian-style palace, the Salute Palace Hotel is located in a culturally stimulating area, in the Dorsoduro district, among art galleries, museums and churches. It stands near the Basilica of Our Lady of Health and a few steps from the Peggy Guggenheim Foundation - European and American museum of the 20th century - from the Accademia Bridge and the collection of Venetian paintings from the Accademia Galleries.
The Salute Palace Hotel takes its name from the Basilica of the Madonna della Salute, testimony of art and faith. Designed by Baldassarre Longhena, a pupil of Palladio and consecrated in 1687, it was erected in gratitude to the Madonna for saving the Venetians from the terrible plague epidemic of 1630.
For more than three centuries, every year on November 21, the date on which the plague was declared eradicated, the Festa della Salute has been celebrated, an anniversary particularly felt by the Venetians. For the occasion, large celebrations are established and a wooden bridge is erected that connects the two banks of the Grand Canal to allow access to the place of prayer for the population.
