Sant'Elena is an island of Venice. It lies at the eastern tip of the main island group and forms part of sestiere of Castello. The original island was separated by an arm of the Venetian Lagoon from Venice itself, and was centred on the Church of Sant'Elena and its monastery, originally built in the twelfth century and rebuilt in the 15th.The island has since been expanded to fill in the gap and is linked to Venice by three bridges. It includes the Rimembranze Park, a naval college and a football stadium, Stadio Pierluigi Penzo, in addition to residential areas and Venice Bienniale buildings.The belltower has a ring of 6 bells in B rung with the Veronese bellringing art.

  • Not so very much interesting
  • Beautiful church with the remains of Queen Elena. It's in the corner of the city and quite place!
  • Walkable distance from Sam Marko, only if you used to long walks, and have comfy shoes ;). Beautiful church. Very Peaceful place. Nice gardener/church worker. He was giving me some info about what's next door etc. But, if you are not a believer, or church lover, and you don't have much time, you can easily skip it. But I am glad I have seen it :)
  • This interesting church can be found in a rather quiet corner of Venice and features a single nave built in an elegant Venetian gothic style.The main attraction is the first chapel on the right, supposedly containing the remains of S. Elena, mother to the roman emperor Constantine. Well worth a visit, especially for those interested in church history!
  • Nice and quiet place for a walk, very nice church
