History

This church was founded in the 9th century by the Doges Pietro Tradonico and Orso Parecipazio. The church was later rebuilt in the 12th, 15th and 19th centuries which destroyed several pieces of art work including mosaics and an altar front. The 19th century restoration did, however, uncover a previously hidden ship's keel roof and window on the façade.
