Santo Stefano

Interior of Church of Santo Stefano di Venezia, VeniceDeconsecrated six times on account of the murder and violence that took place within its walls, Santo Stefano today is remarkably serene. Built in the 14th century, radically altered in the 15th century, the church has a notable carved portal by Bartolomeo Bon, and a campanile with a typical Venetian tilt.

The interior has a splendid ship’s keel ceiling, carved beams, and tall pillars of Veronese marble. The most notable works of art, including some paintings by Tintoretto, are housed in the damp sacristy.
