History

The inscription of the pillar to the left of the nave dates the church as having been established in the 5th century. This is the same year the city attributes to its founding. The current church was built in the 12th century, but it underwent restoration in the 16th century when baroque-influenced features were added. The altars in the church were dedicated to different trade guilds as the church is located in the famous Rialto market. The church is still in use by locals, but also hosts small concerts.
