History

San Trovaso is a combination of two Saints names: Saint Protasio and Saint Gervasio. The first founding date is unknown, but the church was rebuilt in the 12th century and then again in the 16th century. Restoration of the interior occurred in the 19th century. The façades of this church are special as it has two identical façades, to accommodate two feuding families who require separate entrances of equal grandeur.
