  • This little gem is virtually intact marble came up to the present day, with no overlapping styles. A rare example of a church designed, built and decorated by a single artist and his workshop. Masterpiece of Peter Lombard that built between 1481 and 1489. The exterior is covered with marble slabs and shiny coloured stones, stunning visual impact. Before entering stop to observe the twenty-nine medallions along the three facades that depict biblical characters. Within a beautiful coffered ceiling with fifty paintings depicting Prophets and Patriarchs. Presbytery richly decorated with carved marble. On the altar the famous Madonna and child, believed to be miraculous by Zaheeruddin of Peter. The Church is part of the Chorus circuit, so useful to make the pass € 12 applies to all eighteen churches. Too bad the ticket in a stunted Lady on Italian, has been very rude to tourists who weren't absolutely behaving incorrectly, this Sunday, January 29. Spoil your visit.

  • 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.
