Miracles and Marriages

The church of Santa Maria dei Miracoli has proven itself to be a favorite of all who seek it out, whether for religious purposes or just for the sheer appreciation of early Renaissance Venetian architecture. What will strike you as you approach the building is the beautiful colored marble façade, which is continued in an even more elaborate way upon entering the church. For once, paintings and frescoes are not the stars of the interior; rather, it’s the intricate marble detailing on the floors, walls, and on the high altar, which is significantly raised above the rest of the church. It's a very popular place for weddings, so if you happen to visit during one, grab a sneak peek at the elaborate ceremony.
