History

San Nicolo dei Mendicoli is thought to have been established in the 7th century by Paduans due to its proximity to the mainland. Written records show the church was destroyed by fire in the 12th century, and then was rebuilt to be the same base church still standing today. The church was renovated in the 16th and 18th centuries, however the bulk of the church's details remain the same. In the 1970's, Venice in Peril performed lots of restoration work including raising the floor.
