Maybe you will know it as the "spiral staircase of Venice" or maybe you won't know it at all. This is the Scala Contarini del Bovolo (in Venetian dialect means "snail"), a mix of Renaissance, Gothic and Venetian-Byzantine art located in Campo Manin. In my opinion it is one of the most characteristic monuments of Venice, elegant, majestic located in an unexpected place, a destination for tourists who want to admire it and immortalize it in their goals. By the way, if you have photographed, publish your photo on the Facebook page of! Scala Contarini del Bovolo was commissioned by Pietro Contarini towards the end of the 1400s as a decorative element of the adjacent family palace. La Scala is connected to the building on three floors by loggias. On the top floor there is the Belvedere which offers a magnificent view of Venice. In addition to the Scala, on Friday and Saturday of each week there is the possibility to visit the Oratorio dei Crociferi located in Campo dei Gesuiti in Cannaregio. It is a small church with a pictorial cycle by Jacopo Palma il Giovane inside.
