PhotoHunt: Hard-To-Find


This week's theme is "Hard-To-Find."

A great theme for me since Venice is a maze and many things are hard-to-find.

The first time I went to Venice, it was hard to find the church of Santa Maria dei Miracoli. It's very small and tucked away, and I was so happy when I finally found it as it's one of the most beautiful little buildings I've ever seen.


And then on my most recent trip last month, I was looking for another church, San Lazzaro dei Mendicanti. I knew where the church was but what was hard-to-find was the entrance. The main door is always locked, and you have to access the church from inside the public hospital, which is a crazy maze too. I walked around the hospital for a long time but finally found this church.

And here's another one, the church of Santa Croce on Giudecca. I could see the back of this church in the distance behind a wall, but what was hard-to-find was the street that would take me to the other side of the wall. I finally found an unlocked gate and was able to get there. This church could use some TLC. :)

Thanks for visiting and have a great weekend!

Beautiful pics! I would love to get lost while exploring this grand city, and perhaps discover some of these hard-to-find, but well worth the look treasures :)


Glad you found them, what beautiful architecture!!!
Happy hunting and happy weekend.

The interior of the church is so beautiful! I could sit here for hours admiring the works.


What lovely pictures you took of this hard to find places or hard to get to churches.

I'm glad the theme was one where you could show some of your fantastic shots of beautiful Venice. Happy weekend.

Wow now that was well worth the labyrinthine journey. A little gem! Have a great weekend

Wonderful choices. And you make Venice sound like the kind of place that truly rewards exploration! :D

wow! the facade and interiors are spectacular! glad you had the patience to look for these churches.

I see we had the same idea with your first photo!! That was the first thing I thought of, when I saw this weeks challenge. Love your photo of the inside of the other church, beautiful!!

Your pictures are just so beautiful. I´m glad you find these beautiful buildings.

I love those churches. i'm always amaze on how churches are constructed in each country.

How wonderful to be able to travel and see such beautiful places. Seems to me your perseverance has paid off... I may have just given up on trying to find ways to get in. ;o) Great take on this weeks theme!

These are just gorgeous!


No wonder you wanted to find those churches, they are absolutely magnificent!! Enjoy your weekend.

Well worth the hunt! The churches are each beautiful in their own way. Thanks for sharing.

Lovely photos :-)

Hi Annie, I missed this PhotoHunt post of yours. Perfect take on the theme. :) I too found at least one of the churches on my must see list a bit of a challenge to find. Sometimes the hunt can be fun though. :)

These are such beautiful churches and that was cute what you said about some TLC. I'm glad you posted the link on your current post. Thanks so much for sharing.
