Well worth the small 3 euro's fee. What I really liked was the fact that the beautiful marble facade was continued inside and you often have such contrasts in Venice churches. The minute detail of the marble carvings is fantastic, the stems on the ivy going up the steps to the altar is as fine as a cocktail stick. The... More

This church stood out from the many churches we visited in Venice, because it is solid marble inside and out. The significantly raised altar was also unusual. Worth visiting just for the uniqueness value.

The Miracoli is truly a miracle! With its colored marbles and beautiful proportions it recalls the height of the Italian Romanesque style (S. Miniato in Florence) but a has a clear and fresh feeling of the early Renaissance (the Tempio Malatestiano in Rimini) . Built all at once in the late Quattrocento, every detail is coordinated with the building as... More

This early renaissance building was built and decorated by Tullio and Lombardo. Well worth a quick visit.

This tiny church, tucked away is on the "Chorus pass" ticket and well worth a visit. The icon on the high altar is stunning and the various marbles used in decoration are impressive. You can see why this is a favourite for Venetian brides.

Santa Maria dei Miracoli was built by Pietro Lombardi and his son, Tullio, from 1481-1489 to house the 1408 painting, The Virgin and the Child, that was believed to have miraculous powers. Rarely are churches built as a whole, over a short period of time, to the vision of one designer. Santa Maria dei Miracoli reflects that singular beauty in... More

On a wet day we took a ferry then walked a long way to get to Santa Maria. It was high on our list since we had enjoyed our previous visit. When we finally arrived at the church two men were standing in the doorway and told us it was closed for a private function and they were unclear when... More

In the daytime from the outside the marble shimmers on this small but wonderful church. At night from the bar by the canal it takes on a blue hew made more serene by the lapping of water and the occasional gondola that floats by. On the inside it has a perfect painted ceiling and steps to an elevated altar that... More
