  • Campo San Stae or Campo Sant 'Eustachio is a very nicely located square in the Santa Croce district overlooking the Grand Canal. The square takes its name from the church of San Stae, an ancient 12th-century building currently marked by an ornate 17th-century Baroque façade. To the left of the church, the Scoletta of Battioro and Torooro overlooks the square, a small building from the 18th century. Both buildings now house art exhibitions. Campo San Stae is a rather bustling and popular place, both because of the proximity of Ca 'Pesaro, home of the International Gallery of Modern Art in Venice. Also a vaporetto station is nearby, so this place is always very frequented and mainly because of the beautiful Baroque church a very visited place. The church is really worth seeing and built in a typical dialect form. On the site of the present church stood as early as the 11th century a place of worship dedicated to Isaiah, a typical church patron of the East. Nothing remains of the building, which was renewed in the 12th century after a fire. In 1678, radical conversions of the old church began, including an axle rotation, so that now the façade overlooks the Grand Canal. It became a typical hall church for the time with three side chapels and an elevated presbytery. The architect of these conversions was Giovanni Grassi.
