History

Construction of Santa Maria dei Servi took over 140 years and was finally completed in 1474. The size of the church is quiet large and was designed to compete with the Church of San Zanipolo and the Church of I Frari. In the late 18th century, a devastating fire nearly destroyed the church. Both the church and monastery were closed in 1812 by Napoleon. The buildings were then used as a charitable instate for women and later expanded to a school for young girls. The institute is now a student hostel.
