Sacca Fisola

Residential island and a communal pool

Sacca Fisola

Artificial island formed relatively recently by mud in the lagoon, Sacca Fisola is located on the far west end of the Giudecca, and linked to it by a bridge. Once known as one of the most left-wing corners of the city, it's now a very quiet place: the main reason other Venetians visit is to swim laps in the municipal pool. It also has a little campo with a fairly ghasty parish church, San Gerardo, built in the 1960s.
