San Polo District - Sestiere San Polo, Venice: 15 reviews and 46 photos
Campo San Toma is, at least to me, the most beautiful square in whole of Sestiere San Polo. The whole square is dominated by the white marble facade of the church dedicated to San Toma Apostolo. It was founded in 917 with money from the Miani family and restored later on in several ocasions. The facade from 1652, designed by Longhena, was replaced as it was about to fall down. It was replaced in the mid of 18th century with classical facade by Francesco Bognolo.
Opposite to San toma Apostolo stands Scoletta di Callegheri, built in 1446, which is seat of the Brotherhood of shoemakers and cobblers. Calleghieri is Venetian expression for the shoemakers.
