Venice Isles

IOTA: EU131      IIA: VE-12      WW Locator: JN65FM      Wais Square: BJ35      Status: Private

A church was built in the VII C (see ph.2) to host the Benedictine nuns. In 1325 Saint Christina's corpse was transported there from Constantinople, that is how the isle got its name. The nuns lived there until 1452.

The pic on the right shows Santa Cristina seen from Motta dei Cunicci (VE-56).

The isle of Santa Cristina has a surface of 27 hectares and lies on the Northern lagoon, between the San Felice canal and the isle of La Cura. Inland there are a series of rather wide canals which make it look quite peculiar, as you can see in the last photograph.

The island was derelict until a few years ago a private citizen rescued it and built stone banks meant to prevent the tide from flooding the crops. He also built a house which can be seen both from across the canal and the isle of Salina (VE-13) nearby.
