The Chiesa di S. Lazzaro dei Mendicanti, or I Mendicanti as it is locally known, was founded in the year 1636 and is a Catholic church.
The church is named for Medicant Friars who founded the church along with a hospice in 1600. The church itself was not completed and consecrated until 1673. The hospice is now a city hospital, and access to the church is limited through the hospital.
