"Virgen" Venice Local Custom Tip by diageva

Venice Local Customs: 335 reviews and 612 photos

  Ave Maria
by diageva

As at south Spain you will find lots of imagines of the Virgin and of Jesus or of other saints in many places, at Venice, nearly everywhere ... there are of great beauty and art and old. This is a custom I love cause they use to have flowers and candles and they look great at night.
Maybe you can ask something to on of those Virgin and put the imagine a candle, perhaps your petition will be hear :)

Look for them and look them near … they are really beautiful.
