This is a list of all the churches still standing in Venice, including the deconsecrated ones.
The churches on the islands are listed separately, after the main list.
Where a church has more than one possible name the most common, and usually local, version is used.
The alternatives are given too, in grey.
Marin Sanudo, writing in 1493, counted 137 churches in Venice and on the islands. With the steady rate of additions over the centuries
and then the sudden subtractions due to Napoleon we today have a total uncannily close to the 1493 figure.
