  • Not being the most named churches and think of the less visited worth enter and make a prayer and take a few minutes to explore and see its beauty. It is facing the canal. The day we had snow and to its beauty snow around made her storybook - the ticket three euros but there are rates that visit several churches for a few pounds more. Give them as a laminated card at the entrance where it shows them in their language, the location and meaning of everything what you see,

  • Get off the vaporetto, and jumps out the whiteness of the Church. Angel like dancing on the altar is impressive.

  • 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 :)
  • Marvellous facade! Some works of art worth seeing on the inside. The church is often closed.
  • 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 right by the water!
  • Very nice
