We saw the Church while we were enjoying our walk on Santa Maria Formosa Campo in Castillo. It’s a nice historic church (1400’s), but it’s not one of the splendidly decorated ones of Venice. It does have a special Last Supper painting. Good for a...More

Venice has wonderful churches, such as Santa Maria dei Miracoli—but this is not one of them. The paintings are unappealing, many of them 19th Century. The interior and exterior lack distinction. Location is convenient.

Chiesa di Santa Maria Formosa is just another church, and the interesting thing is that they charge you if you want to have a look inside. We only looked at it from the outside and quickly had a peek inside through the front entrance, for...More

Santa Maria Formosa is a pretty enough church on a pleasant and quite lively square, not far from St Mark's. You have to pay 3 euros to go inside but I had a peek through the doors and decided against it.

The current church was built in 1492 on the footprint of an older one. This is one of the churches that we bought the Chorus Pass for and are rewarded by an information card and a lighted church. A Chorus Pass costs 12 Euro and...More

We did not go inside this church. The outside is pleasing enough but I did not find it particularly striking. Although by this point in the day we'd been looking at facades for hours and that might have been part of the reason.

Whereas I enjoy looking at the architecture and interesting features of churches and cathedrals, I do find they can be too similar to make an indelible impression on me. There are exceptions, of course, but generally a church I see in an Italian city looks...More

Took a quick look as we were staying nearby. Seemed to be closed most of the time we were there but there are a number of worth while art pieces to be seen inside. Outside a relatively plain façade is redeemed by the beautiful campanile...More

I was told the Formosa refers to Mary being pregnant. This small church, which was being restored the first time I was there, but still had an excellent chamber music program, has large canvases of Mary, pregnant with Christ Jesus. It is still a very...More

Castello is the largest of the six sestieri
(districts), and the only one not facing onto the
Grand Canal. More than half of Castello is situated
within Arsenale, the naval base, which occupies over
one-fifth the area of Venice. This gentrified maritime
neighbourhood feels busy but casual. Castello’s side
streets are laid back, with small boats lining canals
criss-crossed by laundry. Semiannual exhibitions add a
