History

This church was first built in the 7th century and named for the Savior who appeared in a dream to the builder of the church. The church was destroyed by fire in the 12th century and rebuilt as it appears of the De'Barbari Map. The current church was built in the 16th century, with the façade being added in the 17th century. As a result of the Austrian occupation of Venice in the 19th century, there is a cannon ball lodged in the bottom left corner of the façade.
