History

San Biagio was first built in the 11th century with the intended use for new immigrants. In the late 15th century, Venice's Greek Orthodox community inhabited the church before they moved to the Church of San Giorgio. The latest rebuild was in the late 18th century, designed by Francesco Bognolo, the architect who also designed the Arsenale. In 1810, the church was closed by Napoleon, but reopened later that decade as a naval chapel. The church is now part of the naval museum, and services are rare.
