History

This church and convent were founded in the 15th century by Cistercian nuns who migrated from the island of Torcello. They brought with them many of the paintings that hung in the church before it was suppressed by Napoleon in 1806. The church was last rebuilt during the 16th century. The convent and church were converted to a school for girls in the 19th century, and then elderly housing. It is now part of the Universita Ca'Foscari.
