History

San Michele in Isola was originally founded in the 10th century, and later consecrated in in 1221. A monastery was built in 1212 and housed Camaldolite monks for over six hundred years. The most famous monk to be housed at the monastery was Fra Mario Capellari, who would become Pope Gregory XVI. The Renaissance style façade seen today was completed in 1478 by Mauro Codussi, a builder who would later construct several famous buildings in Venice. The Istrian stone used on the church's façade would influence many future Venetian churches.
