Ca' Sarasina revisited

Back to big shrines...I wrote about this one last year, and I revisited it this past December and took more photos. It's one of my very favorites.

To visit the shrine, you walk through the very charming Campiello de Ca' Sarasina. Love those flower pots on the building. You can see the open green door of the shrine on the right.



A shrine and some laundry. Doesn't get much better than this. :)


There's lots of stuff inside this shrine but the central image is a framed Byzantine-looking Black Madonna adorned with votive jewelry. She does NOT want to be photographed (I've tried twice and failed!).

Another beautiful shrine, Annie. I love the colors! Red paint with green doors. It also looks very well taken care off.
I love your photo of the shrine with laundry. It is so Venice!
Thanks Annie for another great post.

Lovely shrine, Annie. Love the picket fence and the lace curtains. The photo on the door is of a group of women working on lace. I wonder if they made the curtains.

Gorgeous photos. I love the colors. This is a really beautiful shrine.

Candi, I love the colors too. And you are right, it is so Venice!

Maria, I doubt they made the curtains - they didn't really look that old, but you never know.

Girasoli, thanks. I love this one!

Kathy (Trekcapri):

Hi Annie, this is such a beautiful shrine. I also think the little potted plants on that building is cute. I love how pretty it is with the lace curtains, pretty vaces with flowers and I also like the pickett fence.

I have to say that I also enjoy seeing all the laundry hanging throughout Venice. If I was hanging my socks I probably would just hang them all mixed up but the ones in your photo are all neatly matched.

Great post and thank you for sharing these great photos. I love this shrine.

Barb Cabot:

Love this post Annie. Wonderful shrine and the whole atmosphere, very Venice, very special.


What an interesting shrine, Annie! I love the juxtapositioning of the laundry and the shrine -- although it might be illustrating that cleanliness really is next to godliness.

I think I'll add this to my growing list of what to visit in Venice: San Marco for Mass, then perhaps a shrine walk in Castello and Cannaregio!

Kathy, thanks and you're right about the laundry being very orderly!

Barb, thanks. I think it's a special one too.

Sandra, LOL at the cleanliness/godliness line! If you decide to go on a shrine hunt, this one is easy to find...right off Via Garibaldi (and not far from the other big shrines I blogged about last week).

Hahaha on the cleanliness next to godliness!! Funny!

Thanks for another glimpse of this world of big shrines that I hadn't heard about before! Beautiful colors and I agree on the flowerpots too. Great!


I just LOVE all of your shrine photos! They are all so colorful and interesting.
