Quite unassuming by Venice standards from outside ...
Aug 2019
... a quick look inside & the church is full of light helped by its towering roofline. Tintoretto paintings are huge & look back down at the congregation.
The high ceiling/roof line makes for an airy & light filled area.

Bridge church
Jan 2020 • Solo
Rare example of church bridge, under the apse a waterway passes at low tide.
This big church give the name at the Campo Santo Stefano and was built in 13th century together with convent friars of Sant’Agostino.
The wonderful gothic portal was built in 1442 by Bartolomeo Bono.
Inside with three naves with circular and slimy columns.
Beautiful monument dedicated to Domenico Contarini on the wall against the facade.
The most beautiful paintings are in the sacristy, the Last Supper of Tintoretto and the Baptism of Jesus by Pomponio Amalteo both made in 16th century

CARENA DI NAVE CEILING
Apr 2019
This large church located at the end of the eponymous campo is rather plain when viewed from the campo. Just 3 narrow and tall windows and 4 hemispherical windows on the upper order and all constructed of brick. The main entry portal is rather elegant in its gothic splendor. The doorframe is in two courses of scrolled stone, with an intricately carved border. Above the door is a highly detailed false ogive arch. Inside the there is a central nave flanked by an aisle on each side. The ceiling is of a vast wooden carena di nave design. This church is well worth visiting while in Venice

Surprising church
Oct 2019
It doesn't look very special from the outside but it is lovely inside. The ceiling was very unusual and we sat in a pew so that we could look at it properly. The Tintoretto paintings made it even more special. Although there are other, more spectacular churches in Venice this was the one we chose to sit and light a candle in.

So TELL US about it
May 2019 • Couples
The guide book tells me this church has been deconsecrated SEVERAL TIMES so that sounds like a visit will be interesting when you get there you find yet another reasonably old and mildly architecturally interesting church with absolutely no information available
about what happened when. Come on santo Stefano, spill the beans..

A nice church
Mar 2019 • Solo
A nice church at the back of Campo Santo Stefano, looking quite plain from the outside, inside quite pretty, if you want to delve deeper I would recommend getting the chorus pass which allows you access to the museum areas of the churches, otherwise you have to pay 3 euros per church

Beautiful minor church - with a canal under the altar and a leaning campanile
Mar 2019 • Couples
Santo Stefano is definitely a minor church in Venice and it is easily overlooked as from the outside it is not particularly striking. Indoors it is however a beautiful church with a fantastic ship's keel ceiling, red and white marble columns, Dogi's monuments and tombs.
There is a canal under the altar (apparently accessible to small boats), the campanile looks dangerously tilted and it was probably very 'lively' in the Renaissance as it was deconsecrated a few times after stabbings and aggression that happened inside the church.
(Location map on Tripadvisor is totally wrong)

In the square
Mar 2019 • Solo
This is a large brick church in the square of the same name. Typical catholic Venetian church with some amazing artefacts but not one of my favourites in a city of numerous churches.
