U is for Unique

Here are a few shrines in Venice, all dedicated to Mary but each one unique.

This one is on the lighthouse on the island of Murano~

This one, with a mosaic Mary inside, has metal shutters with an "M" embossed on them. Once the sun goes down, someone in the neighborhood comes and closes the shutters.


Cannaregio 4678

I love the textures of the wall behind this shrine and also the colors inside. This one has an "M" too.



Many shrines have floral tributes but this one has a simple green sprig~


There are many many shrines in Venice and I haven't found them all yet!

You have so many unique shrines to discover their in Venice. I do love the city, I have been there once. How respectful that someone closes the shutters each night.

Fantastic collection and you are right about them each being unique. Carver, ABC-Wed. Team

Love those colorful ones that look like stained glass.

These are beautiful!

Ho Annie, i live your photo collection of these unique and beautiful shrines. That's a cool lighthouse on Murano. Love the shrine with the twig.

Annie do know the total number of shrines you've photographed and documented so far on your blog so far? They are each so unique and beautiful.

Kathy, I don't know! I probably need to make a spread sheet or something, LOL. I've posted a lot (but I still have lots more pics I haven't shared yet).


So beautiful! The first one is really unique, have never seen a shrine on a lighthouse before.

Have a great day!

I love the shrine with the metal shutters, definitely unique!

Those are lovely.
