The Chiesa di S. Cassiano, or San Cassian as it is locally known, was founded in the year 900 and is a Catholic church.
The first church built on this site was in the 8th century, but was rebuilt about every hundred years until the 14th century. A final rebuild occurred in the 17th century and the interior has remained the same since. The façade faces a canal, so from the street, one might not realize this building is a church except for the small detail around the doorway.
