The View

IMG_9793

This is the view from the 4th floor of Ca’ Rezzonico. The church is San Barnaba. Wikipedia lists two interesting facts about the church and the canal. The former was used as the library in the movie Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989), the one with the huge “X” on the floor. Only the exterior was used. In reality the church is a Leonardo da Vinci museum. The canal beside it, Rio S. Barnaba, is the one into which Katherine Hepburn fell in the movie Summertime (1955).
