This is the church on Murano that is often overlooked. The other 2, SS Maria e Donato and San Pietro Martire are more likely to have been heard about, or stumbled upon by the visitor to this island north of Venice.
I had been trying for a number of years to gain entry to this church, and then I finally realised that it is open for mass on Sundays. I’m glad I went, the congregation was small, the mass quite informal. And, the church is lovely.

There used to be a convent here, and Casanova had at least 2 lovers among the residents.
