  • The Church of Santa Maria dei Miracoli is an extremely finely decorated and elegant church located in pretty quiet and not very touristic area of Venice .
  • Not sure what the inside of the church looked like as I was busy outside taking photos. My wife went inside though and said that it was quite nice.
  • Marble clad church in quiet part of Venice.
  • Outstanding and unique gem.
  • Marble inside and out. Take a look at the back of the church on the outside and notice the windows. They are not centered, the architect was a sculpture and did not do the math correctly.
