Spectacular church after you wind your way and find it!

A true special church in a city of magnificent churches. Make the effort and visit this slightly challenging place to find. The marble outside is as special as the inside.

Marble inside and out. Take a look at the back of the church on the outside and notice the windows. They are not centered, the architect was a sculpture and did not do the math correctly.

This church is absolutely stunning inside and out and is definitely worth a visit. The colours of the marble facade are incredibly beautiful.

One of the must churches to visit. We visited this church before lunch on our final day in venice. It is a Chorus church. It is also a marble church with the main altar up a flight of stairs. I was even allowed to take a photo from the back of the church.

We stopped outside here on our "Free Walking Tour", and went back later for a good look inside. Eur 3 admission, with a one page guide in your language. It has a very beautiful white marble interior, a spectacular wooden ceiling, and a lovely raised alter, perfect for brides who can be seen be all in the congregation! The church... More

As one of the Chorus line churches and part of the Venice tourist pasport, we were surprised by the beauty and simplicity of the interior of this church on a small square. Not too much decoration inside, but nice marmor walls and wooden ceiling with paintings. Like most churches built with donations.

The outside is wonderful but inside magnificent. The ceiling needs you either to lie on your back or use the mirror; it's is awe inspiring.

It was a pleasure to visit this small church which had lovely marble-veined walls. It does not have masterpieces lining the walls or ceilings to distract you and it certainly felt like a " proper real " church for prayers.

Staying in Cannaregio

Neighborhood Profile
Cannaregio
Cannaregio is the second largest sestiere (district) with its busy Santa Lucia train station. Many transplanted Venetians commute from the outlying areas, “terra firma” to the locals, which is shorthand for any place that is not Venice. Two Grand Canal bridges serve Cannaregio, the newest (Constitution, 2008) still a local hotbed of controversy. Ponte degli Scalzi is a busy link to the train station. Nearby shops on the Lista di Spagna offer specialties like pastries and coffee that lure Venetians with a down-to-earth attitude. The Ghetto, where the Jewish population was segregated in Cannaregio, has five historic synagogues with an active Jewish community. The Fondamente Nove bustles with foot traffic to the Rialto and San Marco while vaporettos (water taxis) head to Murano and other islands. Side streets lead into quiet picturesque neighborhoods and palaces like Ca' d'Oro rise directly out of the water.
