  • Amazing beauty temple-just the triumph of the Baroque, but not flamboyant Baroque, weighted more than architectural detail, but rather-Northern restrained, unless, of course, this epithet generally apply to the Baroque style:)

  • This church perhaps more remarkable because seen from the other side of the channel and is large. Its internal structure is very large and striking but not something to be dramatically interesting. Perhaps after seeing so many churches the spectacular fades.

  • A big church overlooking the Grand Canal,so you can admire if you take a boat trip.Majestic,with beautiful facade but not very different to the other churches in Venice.Very close to it is a vaporetto...  more »

  • 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.
