  • Plaza in front of the Church, without barriers or anything, Canal Grande, facing the open canal to feel was nice. Front façade is beautifully carved and decorated with good, professional-looking Church. Grafic design was needed for 3 euros.

  • Another church that we unfortunately did not see the inside of. The outside is in fact glorious. Catching the light of the sun and clearly showing the lines of the ornamentation adorning the facade.  more »
  • The Church of San Stae (Eustachio) Grande is located on the eponymous vaporetto on the Grand Canal. Both the water and the forecourt of the church you have views of the artfully crafted facade. The Church's interior falls slightly in comparison to the large number of magnificent churches in Venice, so a visit is not necessarily a must.

  • Marvellous facade! Some works of art worth seeing on the inside. The church is often closed.
  • I need to start by sharing a story about my son's skin allergies!!! I was concerned coz of the Europe Summers are hot....and his allergy coming back...he experiences sharp stabbing burning pains, on his back....that prevented him from going outside on really hot days. Now in saying that....we visited San Stae Church.....in Venice back in 2013, it was just breathe taking!! I felt a presents like nothing other, just felt inner peace...as we walked around the church....my son wanted to like up some candles...and we did. We left shortly after and I kid you not....we experienced a miracle...no other way to call it....my son doesn't have the skin allergy anymore!! Amen :)
  • First of all - I'm completely unreligious man. But... in this church I've got some feeling... like someone is watching on me... someone from outside this world. It was scary and miraculous experience in the same time.
  • Beautiful church.
