This church is like a small, perfect jewel box. Among the churches of Venice this one stands out. Beautifully restored by Save Venice it is a place of peace and tranquility.

This church is unique is so many ways. It's age is unreal for the complexity of design and decoration. The curved roof seems to have a focal point above head height that leaves you feeling elevated in some way. It is not too heavy on the more hardcore imagery that many churches are full of, and to me it seems... More

In 1408 Francesco Amadi commissioned a painting of the BVM and placed it in a tabernacle in front of his house. It became an overnight sensation with the populace praying to the portrait and saying that it had miraculous powers. Contributions came flowing in to build a church for the painting and thus the Church of Santa Maria del Miracoli... More

My wife and I stumbled onto this church when we were half lost wondering the alleyways in Venice. We decided to enter on a quite Sunday morning, sat on the bleachers and looked around in wonder. The church is built out of marble slabs, each with their own magical pattern. The patterns were arranged such that the natural patterns within... More

With so many reviews, I feel like I am wasting my time on this one. Still, I loved Santa Maria dei Miracoli. It's out of the way, so you need a good map & you must make an effort to find it. These quiet, out-of-the-way sights in Venice are valuable in and of themselves. (When you are among the throngs... More

Certainly not as grand in scale as many others, but this wonderful neighborhood church in Cannaregio, rich in details and marble craftsmanship, is a masterpiece of early Renaissance architecture. Actually stumbled upon this church while looking for a pharmacy. What a nice surprise and one of many one gets by wandering through this thoroughly Venetian section of Venice..

This small beautifully formed church is totally exquisite, and is the favourite church of most Venetians. It is extremely difficult to find in east Cannaregio even with a map, it took us ages of up and down small alleys, everywhere around it is like a maize, Very small and exclusive, the exterior is covered in various shades of marble with...

We just passed by the Curch Santa Maria dei Miracoli and went in. It is by far not so spectacular as other churches of Venice. But it is one of the oldest on the island and an impressive romanesque style building with some interesting historic artwork.

Staying in Cannaregio

Neighbourhood Profile
Cannaregio
Cannaregio is the second largest sestiere (district) with its busy Santa Lucia train station. Many transplanted Venetians commute from the outlying areas, “terra firma” to the locals, which is shorthand for any place that is not Venice. Two Grand Canal bridges serve Cannaregio, the newest (Constitution, 2008) still a local hotbed of controversy. Ponte degli Scalzi is a busy link to the train station. Nearby shops on the Lista di Spagna offer specialties like pastries and coffee that lure Venetians with a down-to-earth attitude. The Ghetto, where the Jewish population was segregated in Cannaregio, has five historic synagogues with an active Jewish community. The Fondamente Nove bustles with foot traffic to the Rialto and San Marco while vaporettos (water taxis) head to Murano and other islands. Side streets lead into quiet picturesque neighbourhoods and palaces like Ca' d'Oro rise directly out of the water.
