History

This church was founded in the 10th century and named for Saint John the Almsgiver, whose body is laid to rest in the Church of San Giovanni in Bragora in Castello. The church was rebuilt in the 12th century following the fire, and again in the 15th century, only to be destroyed by fire in the 16th century. The church was rebuilt in the 16th century and recently underwent extensive restoration in the early 2000s.
