  • There is nothing much to see. This place is not exciting. Go to other places nearby that are better.

  • The square is a must. Spectacular and historic! Have a drink i. One of the cafes and admire the local life and structures
  • One of the most beautiful churches in Venice,next to the civil hospital
  • Pro: really far away from the buzzing center. Just from outside you can appreciate the joint architecture of the church and the hospital. Going inside was 3 € per person, worth it.
