• About

    Palazzo Molin Querini, also known as Palazzo Molin alla Maddalena, is a palace located in the Cannaregio district, in Venice, overlooking the Grand Canal at the point where it merges with the Rio della Maddalena. The palace is next to Palazzo Emo alla Maddalena.

     

    SHORT HISTORY

    Before passing to the Querini family, the palace belonged to the ancient Molin family, from which the Doge Francesco Molin was part. In the 18th century, in the palace lived another important member of the Molin family, the Bishop of Brescia Giovanni Molin.

    The last reconstruction of the palace dates back to the 18th century.

     

    ARCHITECTURE

    The palace presents a facade divided in two. On the left, there is the water portal, surmounted by a Palladian window (a Palladian window, or serliana, is an architectural element composed of a round arched central window, symmetrically flanked by two rectangular windows), and three separate windows. On the right, we can find two rectangular windows, facing the Rio della Maddalena.

    In addition to the ground floor and the main floor (piano nobile), there is also a mezzanine, an upper floor and an attic. The palace has a very small interior courtyard.

     

    HOW TO GET THERE

    Palazzo Molin Querini is located about 450 meters away from the San Marcuola vaporetto stop, on the waterbus Lines 1 and 2. However, the best place to admire the palace is on the other bank of the Canal Grande, in front of the Church of San Stae.
