  • Access to the building is via the side entrance. The interior, which has 3 naves, is dazzlingly rich. On the counterfaçade is a beautiful organ by bazZANI, whose cantoria is decorated with 3 small paintings, executed by Carletto CALIARI, depicting episodes of the life of Sainte Marthe. The central nave, with its sumptuous gilded wood decoration, is separated from the choir by a grandiose Byzantine iconostasis topped by a large golden wooden statue of Christ surrounded by the Virgin and Saint John and, at the ends, 2 Angels. The high altar is decorated not with a painted altarpiece but with a large gilded wooden statue of Saint Nicholas. The magnificent ceiling is divided into boxes containing beautiful paintings narrating episodes of the life of Saint Nicholas: in the center, in a round panel "Saint Nicholas in Glory" by Francesco MONTEZZANO surrounded, on either side, by 2 rectangular panels painted by Leonardo CORONA. Again, in this masterpiece of art, a "sidereal" void of tourists! Sometimes, fleeting appearance of one or two visitors who dedicate to this sublime church at least ... 5 minutes!! Distressing while Venice is "asphyxiated" by mass tourism...

  • As a Venetian I know the city and its attractions quite well and when I have interesting guests I accompany them to visit the most beautiful views (in my opinion) not to be missed. The experience that everyone has enjoyed is that of entering the Church of St. Nicolo' dei Mendicoli whose richness of works always leaves bases, proving that the Basilica of St. Mark is not the only excellence of the Venetian churches.

  • The first church of Venice, just the tower survived from the original building, but it still worth to see it. Beautiful ornaments and sculptures inside of the church.
  • You have got to see inside!
