History

Chiesa della Croce was completed in the 13th century, and then rebuilt in 1511 with a Tuscan style façade. The church and convent were built adjacent to the famous Eden Garden, once the property of the Greek Princess Aspasia. In 1806, the nuns of the convent moved to the Church of San Zaccaria and the church has since fallen into disrepair.
