The large Campo Santo Stefano lies in the southern bend of the Grand Canal, west of San Marco. Canaletto has taken his view looking south from a first-floor window in the northern corner of the square; the church of Santo Stefano itself is out of sight beyond the left of the composition. To the left the buildings have unusually extravagant examples of the typically Venetian flared chimney stacks.
