Basilica di Santa Maria della Salute is one of the most important religious buildings in Venice. Its striking dome is depicted in most of the city’s postcards.

Salute, as it is commonly known, was founded in 1631. The basilica was built to commemorate the end of a terrible outbreak of the plague that began in 1630, and killed a large portion of the Veneto population. It was dedicated to Our Lady of Health (Salute in Italian).

The architect, Baldassare Longhena, was commissioned to design the church and had also been responsible for the construction of the Ca’ Rezzonico. Santa Maria della Salute took 56 years to build and was completed in 1687.

The Franç​ois’ Langur (Trachypithecus francoisi), also called François’ leaf monkey, Tonkin leaf monkey, or white side-burned black langur, can be found in the dense, humid forests and lush, green valleys of southern Guangxi province in China, northern Vietnam, and west-central Laos. Their habitat region, therefore, is listed as tropical and terrestrial and they live in a rainforest biome. They tend to occupy sites with lower elevation, steeper slope, a higher tree canopy density, and nearby water sources.

Scientific Name
Gorilla gorilla gorilla (point taken)

The western lowland gorilla is the most numerous and widespread of all gorilla subspecies. Populations can be found in Cameroon, the Central African Republic, the Democratic Republic of Congo and Equatorial Guinea as well as in large areas in Gabon and the Republic of Congo.
Western lowland gorillas can be distinguished from other gorilla subspecies by their slightly smaller size, their brown-grey coats and auburn chests. They also have wider skulls with more pronounced brow ridges and smaller ears.
