The Chiesa di S. Donato, or San Donato as it is locally known, was founded in the year 1600 and is a Catholic church.
Originally founded in the 7th century, the church was rededicated to St. Donato, the patron saint of Murano in the 12th century. At this time, the church was also rebuilt, as commemorated on a date marker in the mosaic floor. In the 19th century, the façade was renovated in the Baroque style, giving San Donato its unique appearance of two facades, each in different architectural styles.
