History

Founded in the 16th century, this church was nicknamed Ospedaletto, or small hospital, as it was one of the four Venetian hospitals. Renovations were slow to occur due to a lack of funds, but work was completed in the 17th century. In the 19th century, the hospital was converted to elderly housing.
