History

Founded in the 10th century, San Felice is dedicated to Saint Felix of Nola. The church was rebuilt only twice and the building standing today dates back to the 16th century. The façade was built to model the Church of San Giovanni Grisostomo, also located in Cannaregio. After being briefly closed by Napoleon in the early 1800s, the church was reopened in 1810, with its art work and relics intact. San Felice houses the bones of St. Felix as well as a clump of dirt said to be stained with Christ's blood.
