The area
Address
Neighborhood: 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.

Chiesa dei Santi Apostoli di Cristo or the Church of the Holy Apostles of Christ is from 7th-century and is a Roman Catholic church.

Its located in the Cannaregio district and we discovered it during our walking tour.

It is one of the oldest churches in Venice and has undergone numerous changes since its origin.

In 1575 the church was rebuilt rather than renovated.

The bell tower was built in 1672.

Santi Apostoli church was founded by San Magno the Bishop of Oderzo, in 643, and built on a site where he saw twelve cranes, after an apparition of the twelve Apostles told him to look for this sign. Destroyed by the fire of 1106 and rebuilt. It was rebuilt again from 1570-75, probably by Alessandro Vittoria, and again in the mid-18th century by Giovanni Pedolo. It has a plain façade with the more attractive side view dominated by the campanile and the domed exterior of the Corner Chapel

This church is very interesting and amazing! You can find there not too easy because of the narrow streets of Venice. It looks like an old church, but it is well maintained. You can visit that church if you like art, history and architecture.

Cool clock tower in a little shopping area with a few stands and cafes. We didn't go up but could still appreciate it from below.

If you are staying in Murano, as we were, or coming from Murano/Burano by Vaparetto, you might well get off at Fondamente Nuova. Walking from there towards central Venice, we often seemed to stumble across Campo Santi Apostoli. Nice little are, surprisingly quiet, some old-fashioned artisans making genuine masks, rather than tourist ta.

We visited this church on our last day in venice. Situated in the Cannaregio district in Venice. We were searching for the Libreria Acqua Alta but stumbeled across this church which was one of the oldest chuches in venice but which has undergone numerous changes. Beautiful interiorm especially the font and the picure of Last Communion of St. Lucy by Giambattista Tiepolo. Well worth a visit if you are passing.

The square in front of this church has some nice park benches. We sat here on a gorgeous sunny morning and watched the world go by.

A big church and one of the most important in Venezia. If you visit the island, make sure you take a look.

One of the oldest churches in Venice, dating back to the 7th century, the current building with its simple basiluca plan dates from 1575. Noteworthy is the Renaissance chapel for the Cornaro family which has paintings by Tiepolo and Veronese, and there are paintings and sculptures by other artist.
