Santa Maria Formosa, Venice: 10 reviews and 20 photos
The legends say the name of this church came from an apparition of the Virgin Mary as a shapely (formosa in Italian) woman to Saint Magno in the seventh century.
The Church has 2 facades, one faces the canal and another faces the square.
When travelling by Vaporetto (the boats that are the main mode of transit besides your feet) down the Grand Canal, try to stand by the front or rear of the boat for the best views. Many churches are situated along the canal and you can get great photo opportunities.
