Madonna della Salute

A few shrines that contain an image of the icon from the high altar of the church of Santa Maria della Salute~



Here's one with some helpful graffiti, in English no less: "Don't Worry!" ~



You can barely read the "Madonna della Salute" at the top of this shrine in San Polo~


This one also says "Madonna della Salute" at the top, but the shrine was empty inside (no icon but there were a couple of pink roses)~

Kathy (Trekcapri):

Hi Annie, beautiful photo collection of these wonderful Madonna della Salute shrines. Interesting graffiti on that one shrine. Seems appropriate.

Thank you so much for sharing some of your great finds and photos from your recent trip. Have a great day today.


Such interesting shrines, in various conditions! I wonder if there was ever something else around the "don't worry" shrine; such as a small altar or a bit of an enclosure.

Thanks Kathy, I like the graffiti too. :)

Sandra, I wonder about that one too. The roof looks so big compared to the image; there probably was something else there at some point.
