History

Santa Giustina is said to be one of the twelve churches founded by Saint Magnus in the 7th century, but records date the founding to the 12th century. The church was rebuilt in the 16th century following the arrival of Augustinian nuns. The façade was later added in the 17th century. Both the church and convent were suppressed in 1810 by Napoleon and in the mid19th century the altar was moved to the Church of Sant'Aponal as the church was converted to a sailor's school.
