A gem

This is a little gem - easy to see why it is one of the Venetians favourite churches. A lovely antidote to the often Rococo madness of some of the churches.

An absolute jewel box of a place, this is an incredibly beautiful little church that is still vibrant and has an active congregation. It's unlike any other church I've seen in Venice or anywhere else. There's also a very pretty campo by the church with interesting places to have a glass of wine or an espresso. A must see!

By the name of the place we really wanted to see the church. But it was not as we expected. We really didn't like any of the decorations inside. Bit sad.

I didn't have time to vist many churches in Venice but this one was definitey the most beautiful I saw. Not easy to find (like many places in Venice !) but well worth the effort. Built by one single architect and richly and beautifully decoreated with different coloured marble in the inimitable Italian style

We visited and we struck how pleasantly uncrowded it was therefore making our visit very peaceful. We lit a candle for loved ones who have passed on and gave a small donation

The real wonder is hidden in the simple things... This church is a small one and not full of decorations. Exactly that is why I feel it's a real magic place. There is a lot of simplicity and purity. I like to go there for clearing my mind doing a short meditation. The real miracles start inside of yourself. So... More

A beautiful setting in Canareggio. Lovely little piazza next to a small canal. The Church is a tribute to work in marble pink and white, the interior is peaceful no baroque over the top decorations here. The piazza has a lovely simple bar great for a pit stop to take in the ambience.

We didn't go inside, however the outside of the church was so very beautiful, even with its imperfections - our guide told us the architect was more of a sculpture, rather than a person good with calculations, therefore the windows on the back are not centered in their arches, which makes the church even more special-looking. It does indeed resemble... More

The only church which is made of marbles only. Looks like a treasure box. Currently most of the weddings are held here as easy access from canal which is only few meters. This way even if rains bride dress won't get wet or dirty. Nice one, worth a visit!

Staying in Cannaregio

Neighbourhood Profile
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 neighbourhoods and palaces like Ca' d'Oro rise directly out of the water.
