  • Campo San Stae or Campo Sant 'Eustachio is a very nicely located square in the Santa Croce district overlooking the Grand Canal. The square takes its name from the church of San Stae, an ancient 12th-century building currently marked by an ornate 17th-century Baroque façade. To the left of the church, the Scoletta of Battioro and Torooro overlooks the square, a small building from the 18th century. Both buildings now house art exhibitions. Campo San Stae is a rather bustling and popular place, both because of the proximity of Ca 'Pesaro, home of the International Gallery of Modern Art in Venice. Also a vaporetto station is nearby, so this place is always very frequented and mainly because of the beautiful Baroque church a very visited place. The church is really worth seeing and built in a typical dialect form. On the site of the present church stood as early as the 11th century a place of worship dedicated to Isaiah, a typical church patron of the East. Nothing remains of the building, which was renewed in the 12th century after a fire. In 1678, radical conversions of the old church began, including an axle rotation, so that now the façade overlooks the Grand Canal. It became a typical hall church for the time with three side chapels and an elevated presbytery. The architect of these conversions was Giovanni Grassi.

  • This is not much of a square, just a small space in front of Chiesa di San Stae. The square deadends at the Grand Canal. I have never seen anything happening here during the numerous times that I have...  more »
  • It is not from the word "square" image will be so widely. But wider than the path to arrive here.

  • Cool church. Didn't go inside because it was 12€. Most of the churches and basilicas charge for entry and we were doing a vacation on a budget, so we skipped going into a lot of the churches. So much beautiful things to see in Venice for no cost, there is no reason to spend money unless you have a lot of it or you have been to Venice multiple times.
  • Impressive church located at the Canale Grande. Site of the final scene of the famous movie "Don't Look Now".
  • Amazing that this 'floating' city on the water. It's just something to admire!
  • Beautiful place !!!
  • Easy access to Hotel Al Ponte Mocenigo.
