Church of Saint Nicholas of the Beggars

Local nameSan Nicolo' dei Mendicoli
LocationDorsoduro, Venice, Italy

Although the facade of this 12th-century church isn't very eye-catching, its elaborately decorated interior is definitely worth visiting. Be sure to notice the stunning altarpiece and an astonishing ceiling painting. Historically, the church (as suggested in its name) served the poor and the beggars and also the women which sought refuge here.
