December 13, 2022

December 13 is Saint Lucia. Everyone knows the saying about the shortest day there is, many, however, do not know that the remains of the Sicilian martyr are kept in Venice, in a sanctuary dedicated to her. Saint Lucia's relics were brought to Venice from Constantinople in 1206 by Doge Enrico Dandolo and placed in the ancient church that stood where the train station is now located. In 1863 in order to make room for the train station, dedicated not surprisingly to St. Lucia, the building was torn down and the saint’s remains were brought to the nearby church of San Geremia, which has since been named after both saints, Geremia and Lucia. These and other stories about Venice can be found in the Guide "Venice from A to Z" created for Hotel Excelsior by writer Nicola Lecca which our guests will find in their rooms as a gift from the management......#ExcelsiorExperience #ExcelsiorVenice #ExcelsiorForYou #ExcelsiorMoments #ExcelsiorDream #VeryExcelsior #Venezia #Venice #Venedig #Venise #luxurytravel #besthotels #travelagency #luxuryhotel #hotel #luxury #staywithstyle #luxuryhotelitaly
