“Quiet and serene”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

When we visited Campo Santa Maria, it was evening. The sun lit up our path and we were drawn to it like magnets. Inside we saw the most serene beauty and felt the peace that comes only in a place of worship, despite the cacophony outside.

“Stunning!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2012

What amazing thing they did with stone and wood back in those days! Really worth the walk around. TIP: Always seems to have an old lady around these free churches asking for money. You are almost led to believe that they are collecting the money, but don't be fooled....

“One of the most charming Venice churches”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2012

We didn't have time to go inside the church but admiring it from the outside was a great experience by itself. Santa Maria dei Miracoli can't boats the endless artworks of San Rocco, neither it possesses the grand scale of S.M. Gloriosa Frari or S.S. Giovanni e Paolo or ornate richness of S. Moise, but its more simplified design, its compact size, its ideal set of proportions, its carefully placed location, and finally its overall marble exterior finish, all of the above is what makes Santa Maria dei Miracoli so unique. This 'jewel box of a church' (that's how it is sometimes called) is not to be missed. An absolute must.

“A true miracle”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2012

Possibly the most beautiful church in Venice. Popular with local residents for RC wedding -watch if you can as they are quite a spectacle as the happy couple depart by flower covered gondala.

“An unusual church”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2012

The interior of this church is a 'must see' and will cost a couple of euros. The 1408 picture od the Madonna is something else.
