In the Castello neighborhood of Venice is Campo Santa Maria Formosa, a lively piazza named after the 15th-century church that sits in the area. The structure has two facades, each representing two different architectural styles, with its more ornate Baroque façade opening up onto the square.
Campo Santa Maria Formosa also includes the 13th-century Palazzo Vitturi and the 17th-century Palazzo Ruzzini, both of which are now hotels that have largely kept many of their original elements. Visitors are likely to see locals shopping in the area, as well as children playing in the square.
Campo Santa Maria Formosa is located in the Castello district and sits to the northeast of St Mark's Basilica and only minutes from the Rialto Bridge.
