The Chiesa di S. Giovanni Grisostomo, or San Giovanni Grisostomo as it is locally known, was founded in the year 1050 and is a Catholic church.
This Byzantine influenced church was constructed in the 11th century. The original church burned in the 15th century and was rebuilt by Mauro Codussi who also designed the Church of San Zaccaria. The church has a similar curvy design, but its façade is very similar to the Church of San Michele in Isola. The façade was damaged in air raids during the First World War.
