Campo Santo Stefano[1]

A campo, although not a street by common understanding, is a large paved walkway which typically contains a church and wellhead. Campo in English means "a grassy field".[2] Originally, all campi in Venice were grassy fields, but over time all of these fields were paved over. There are 168 campi in Venice.
