"Try to see Sta Maria Formosa" Santa Maria Formosa Tip by ChrsStrl

Santa Maria Formosa, Venice: 10 reviews and 20 photos

  The tower
by ChrsStrl
 
 

The name is derived from the tradition that the Madonna appeared to its founder in the 7thC in the form of a well built young lady!

The newly cleaned tower is almost pink! Look for the grotesque mask at its base when you visit.
