History

San Pietro is one of the twelve churches established by Saint Magnus in the 7th century. The church was enlarged in the 9th century and rededicated to St Peter. In the 15th century, St. Peter's became the home of the Venetian patriarch. The church underwent restoration in both the 12th and 16th centuries. The façade was not completed until the 17th century following Palladio's death. The patriarch remained at St. Peter's until napoleon invaded Venice in 1807 and this position was transferred to Basilica of San Marco.
