History

Just outside of Saint Mark's Square, San Basso was first constructed in the 11th century. After being destroyed by two fires, the church was last rebuilt in the 17th century. The façade from this rebuild remains unfinished, the bottom half is smooth stone, but the top cuts off, incomplete. Napoleon closed the church in 1810, and was then used to store art work. It was restored in the 1950s and now hosts exhibits and Vivaldi concerts.
