The surroundings, stairway and arch were eye-catching in their own right.
But, there was something quite special at the top of the stairs.

The top one is just so fascinating… 🙂
Thank you. It surely attracted my attention.
Beautiful. Thanks for sharing your gift.
You are so very welcome.
What a beautiful picture and we felt like we were climbing the stairs to see the beautiful Madonna.
Thank you for the lovely peek at a different world.
Shoko and Kali.
Isn’t it a most special place to call home? I have to admit to a touch of envy.
Paw Pats from Minx, my moggie.
Very beautiful, love the entrance and stair leading you in..

It does look inviting, doesn’t it, Michael?
What a fantastic shot Yvonne, a beautiful doorway.
Good morning, Laurie, and thank you.
Good morning to you Yvonne, you’re welcome.
Je connais cette petite corte, j’ai eu la chance de trouver la porte ouverte un jour, le facteur avait oublié de pousser la grille.
Je peux vous dire exactement où cela se trouve si vous le désirez ?
Oh, yes please! Several people will be glad to have that information, Danielle.
And could it be in English as well as French? I understood the reply but might not be able to understand the directions.:-)
Just copy and paste any foreign language into a translator, such as Google, Michelle.
As many of my fellow students in my Italian class are discovering….Google Translate is not to be trusted…..but I’ll try.
I guess that means my Italian is getting better when I can recognize that Google got it wrong!
Hello, it’s just near the bridge dei Scudi, in calle the same name N°2654.
If you come from campo de le gate, you must to pass the bridge and it’s just after on the right and on the left you’ve the corte and calle del Pozzeto.
Thank you so much, Danielle!
Michelle, the translation function does give a general idea, anyhow, and is immensely improved, compared to a couple of years ago.
Yes, I agree Google has gotten better with translation than it was but one of my classmates had used it last Wednesday to translate English to Italian. It didn’t really work. I’m better off with my dictionary for that kind of thing.
But even in French I can get the general gist.
Very beautiful and special!
It is obviously loved and well taken care of, Sonia.
So beautiful! What a great find. I love the light above the Madonna – I bet it looks very cool at night.
It would look very special. Maybe I’ll get to see it at night, Annie.
So beautiful. Something to search for next month 😀
Winckelmann has suggested where it is. Campo de le Gatte is not far from the Arsenale, the Calle could be Calle dei Furlani. Good luck, and let us know if you are successful, Andrew.
Will do. Thank you.
Maybe I am wrong but I think it is along the calle which goes to Campo de le gatte, in Castello.
I think you are no doubt correct, Winckelmann! Grazie.
Calle dei Scudi goes to Campo de le Gatte and there is a gate and corte very similar to that one out my front door to the left on the right hand side but I looked at my pictures and it’s not quite the same. I was up and down Calle dei Furlani almost every day (it’s the route to Punto) and never saw that gate you took the picture through but it’s probably in that general area. I’m thinking perhaps another entrance to the Palazzo that I can see through this gate (ie. around the corner)
Note: I was taking the Christmas decorations.
Religion is everywhere in Italy, isn’t it?
It sure is, Anneli.
That corte looks so familiar….I’m sure I’ve been by there, deep in Castello. Couldn’t find a picture and if I took one I totally missed that door and shrine.
Nice catch Yvonne.
It was one of those ‘stumble upon’ lucky things, Michelle. I’m sure I’ll never find it again!
And I’m sure it was one of those that we have both walked by more than once and never noticed before.
Venice tends to be like that: now you see it, now you don’t.
I just loved the top photograph Yvonne. I also noticed the 13th century telephone book in the letterbox of the green door on the right of the same photograph. ❤ xox
You’re quick to spot and recognise that 13th century publication! There weren’t many entries in it, of course. ❤ oxo
Of course 😀
I remember coming across this special shrine a few years ago. Its somewhere in Castello….right?
I think so, Linda,. I tried to locate the original photos in my folders, to say where it was, and can’t find them! Grrr.
