The area
Address
Neighbourhood: 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.

The paintings and statues are very old and well done. It did not talk about the miracles of Saint Lucia, but it does show where she came and laid to rest. It does have prayers and votives to St. Lucia. It was nice to see.

There are churches round every corner in Venice, you could easily just fall into one! This is how we came across Santa Lucia as it’s just round the the corner from our hotel. I’m so glad we did! Free entry (donations welcome) and really interesting - both the story of Lucia and another bit displaying a wooden sculpture of Christ and its history.

Probably the only reason to go in this church is to view the remains of Saint Lucia or Lucy that are on an altar. Legend has it your eyesight will improve if you pay her a visit. I guess she is the patron saint of eyes .
Otherwise, only of interest if you are a church fanatic. They have a mass at 10 am so be aware of that.

We stopped by the church of St Lucy a couple of times whilst walking around Venice. Located fairly closely to the train station it is easy to access and has a square out front to relax in and soak up the site.

The origin of this church dates to the 11th century and was rebuilt on this site more than once. It is a shrine containing the relic remains of Saint Lucia an early Christian martyr. The train station nearby was named for this saint.

The tourist path close to the northern bank of the Canal Grande passes the Campo (square) San Genesio with the nice church close to the sestiere of Cannaregio. The church forms the imposing conclusion of this wide opening square. The inside is less spectacular compared with other churches in Venice. Its best known for its relics of Saint Lucia. In mediavel times Venice acquired works of art and relics, but sometimes they looted them in pagan lands and in the case of the relics of Saint Lucia even in Byzantium in 1204 p.c.

This is a fantastic church located in a nice little square, once inside the architecture is quite impressive but the real reason to visit in the relic of Santa Lucia, it’s really quite amazing.

Truly breathtaking, irrelevant of religious affiliation. The architecture and artwork are phenomenal, especially when considering the age, and the details in the carvings are amazing. There is no charge to enter, simply a request for donation, if you would like to. I would highly recommend stepping inside, if only briefly, as it will impress.

San Geremia is a church in Venice, northern Italy, located in the sestiere of Cannaregio. The apse of the church faces the Grand Canal (Venice), between the Palazzo Labia and the Palazzo Flangini. The edifice is popular as the seat of the cult of Saint Lucy of Syracuse, whose remains are housed inside.
A respite from the heat and crowds outside and very rare to find remains on display. We felt awed by this church, not the prettiest but very moving

This Church is mainly dedicated to Santa Lucia, the saint that cures eyesight illnesses. Her remains are at the main altar at the Church.
This Church is a beauty and the paintings it has make worth the visit. Please understand that they may be people praying that need silence and respect.
There is a guide inside the Church that explains the life of Santa Lucia.
