The Chiesa de S. Angelo Raffaele, or L'Anzolo Rafael as it is locally known, was founded in the year 416 and is a Catholic church.
Supposedly, Angelo Raffaele is one of the oldest churches built in Venice, first founded in the 5th century by the Lord of Padua's wife. The first written record of the church however does not appear until the 12th century when the church was rebuilt after a fire. The current church was constructed in the 17th century with the façade facing a small canal. The façade was restored in 2004, giving the church the appearance of being newer than it actually is.
