• About

    Campo Sant’Angelo, known in Venetian dialect as Campo Sant’Anzolo, is a square in Venice, located in the San Marco district (sestiere).

    The campo owes its name to the homonymous church that once stood there.



    Campo Sant’Angelo was once separated by Rio de Sant Anzolo, which currently delimits its southwestern side, by the Church of San Michele Arcangelo.

    The church was demolished at the beginning of the 19th century, in the wake of the Napoleonic suppression of Italian religious orders.

    Campo Sant’Angelo is a large square located about halfway between Campo Santo Stefano and the smaller Campo Manin.

    The square is overlooked by palaces of great historical-architectural importance.

    On its northwestern side, there is Palazzo Trevisan Pisani, also known as Palazzo Somachi, built in the 17th century for the Trevisan family and ceded later to the Pisani family.

    Adjacent to Palazzo Trevisan Pisani, we can find Palazzo Gritti, also known as Palazzo Gritti Morosini, built in the 16th century for the noble Gritti family.

    On the eastern part of the square, there is Palazzo Duodo a Sant’Angelo, built in the 15th century for the Duodo family and bought later by the Zen family, who owned it until the end of the 19th century.

    On the southwestern side of the square, there is the rear wall of the Monastery of Santo Stefano.

    The ogival portal of the monastery stands on the bridge which make the connection to Campo Santo Stefano. The portal is embellished by a lunette with a bas-relief representing Saint Augustine among the monks.

    Also, located on the western side of the campo, is the small Oratory of the Annunciation (Oratorio dell’Annunziata), of very ancient foundation.

    In the square, there are also two wells from the 15th century, both located between Palazzo Gritti and Palazzo Duodo.



    Campo Sant’Angelo is located about 2.3 kilometers on foot from the Venezia Santa Lucia railway station.

    The closest vaporetto stop is Sant’Angelo, located about 220 meters away, on the waterbus Line 1.
