The Church of St. Martin (Italian: Chiesa di San Martino) is a Roman Catholic church located in Piazza Galuppi, the main square of the Island of Burano, northeastern Italy.
Five interesting facts about the church:
- The Renaissance-style temple was built in the 16th century and consecrated in 1645.
- Its Baroque interior has a Latin cross plan, with a nave and two aisles divided by Neoclassical pillars.
- It contains the Italian painter Francesco Fontebasso (1707–1769) tapestries from 1732 and the “Crucifixion” work of the Italian painter Gian Battista Tiepolo (1696–1770).
- Built between 1703 and 1714 by the Italian architect Andrea Tirali (1657–1737), the Campanile has a square plan and is 6.20 m (20 ft) wide at the bottom and 53 m (173.8 ft) high.
- Because of land subsidence, the Campanile is inclined of 1.83 m (8 ft) respect to its axis.
