Green and Yellow Shrine

Another large and well-loved shrine in Castello, this one has three statues inside - Mary, Christ, and a nun-saint who is probably Santa Rita. This one has double doors - the wooden ones which were open and then the glass-fronted doors which were closed and locked. Love the white roses and lace curtains.

There's an old vintage black-and-white photo of this shrine inside the shrine, with the caption "Tanto Tempo Fa" ....."So Long Ago."

Very nice.I love the green and yellow paint. You are so good at finding great shrines.


What an interesting shrine! The colours are very vivid.

I wonder who maintains these shrines? This one looks especially well-cared for.


I love your photos of the interesting places you've been...

Kathy (Trekcapri):

Hi Annie, this is a very beautiful looking and as you said well loved shrine. It's so large and even the statues inside looks large. I love those pretty lace curtains and beautiful white roses too. I wish I could've seen some of these beautiful shrines when I was in Venice in 2007.

Thank you so much for posting your wonderful photos of this cool shrine Annie. Have a great evening! BTW, two more days until Saturday! :)

It’s beautiful shrine, Annie. Nice detail on top of the glass doors. The lace curtains make the shrine look very homey. Is this one of the largest shrines you have ever seen in Venice?

Thanks everyone.

Candi, I love looking for (and finding) shrines, it's one of my favorite things about Venice.

Sandra, I think the Venetian neighborhood ladies take care of these shrines, perhaps the same ladies who feed the cats? I've never seen anyone "in action" at a shrine though.

Maria, I think the blue one that I wrote about a couple of days ago is the biggest that I've found. But this one is in the Top Five largest.

Ann, thank you!

Kathy, yes two more days and I am starting to get very nervous!

Beautiful! I wonder if the gates/doors of the shrine were open for a special occasion or if they are opened every day.

Fabulous! I didn't realize that there were so many larger shrines. When you take me on the guided tour you will have to show them to me!! :)
