Venice Off The Beaten Path: 717 reviews and 1,246 photos
Santa Maria del Giglio is worth a visit, although is exterior is covered with sculptures of the Venetian great and good (ok, rich: they paid for the rebuilding of the church) rather than anything religious.
It's worth going inside if only to visit the Sacristy, which has a Madonna & child supposedly by Rubens (there's a Tintoretto in the main church) and , more interesting from my point of view, a rather large collection of relics: bones, hair, bits & pieces of all sorts.
Just outside there's a shop with a flat roof: this used to be the campanile, until it was lopped off in 1774.
