“Beautiful church and setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 February 2014

This church is a small gem, well worth seeking out. Beautifully proportioned and decorated without and within with marble and with paintings on its barrel-vaulted ceiling, it is a masterpiece of Renaissance architecture. The church was built to house a beautiful icon of the Virgin, which now graces the altar. Note: The map provided by TripAdvisor incorrectly places the church in the Dorsoduro neighborhood. In fact it is located in Cannaregio. Find it on a map locator or get directions before heading out.

“stunning church - empty in January”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 January 2014

tucked away between Rialto and Fondamento. Nice somewhat smaller scale church - apparently beloved by Venetian wedding planners

“Absolutely stunning !! Worth the trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 January 2014 via mobile

To get to this gem we caught the ferry - which gives you the opportunity to see the grand canal and it's surroundings on the way. The church itself is one of my favorites - the outside architecture breath taking with statues carved into the building from stone. Inside there are beautiful paintings and take notice of the beauty in the tiles on the floor in the centre

“Off the beaten track”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 November 2013

It needs persistence to find this church, but it is worth it. Interesting contrast to the ornateness of the principal churches in Venice. Simple, but serene. They say that people like getting married here.

“A gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 November 2013

This little jewel box of a church is a must. Nothing is very far away in central Venice so it really is worth the effort.
