History

The Scalzi was founded by the Carmelites in 1633 upon their arrival in Venice. They hired Baldassare Longhena to build them a church and monastery, the same architect who designed Santa Maria della Salute. They dedicated their Baroque church to St. Maria di Nazareth. Napoleon suppressed this church in 1810, but the nuns were able to return in 1840. Since then the monastery has been demolished and the rail station built.
