Campo San Stin is a field in Venice, in the San Polo district, not far from Campo dei Frari and the Scuola Grande di San Giovanni Evangelista.

The plaza dates back to around the sixteenth-century. It has the characteristics of a Venetian meeting place. The house of Barbacani, the other low houses all around, and the Scuola Grande di San Giovanni Evangelista nearby make this area particularly revealing about how residents used to display their wealth.

In the painting by Bernardo Bellotto, we see the square as it was before the demolition of the Church of San Stin by Napoleon.

The beautiful well in the center of the field has bas-relief decorations dedicated to the saint. It also has a commemorative inscription regarding a Jacobus Barbaro who had the well built for water's common use for all the surrounding area's inhabitants.
