History

This Augustinian convent and church were founded in the 15th century. The church was rebuilt in the early 16th century along with the addition of a scuola, or school. During this rebuilding, the orientation of the church was reversed and the current façade was constructed. The complex was suppressed in 1806, but the church and convent reopened a few years later. The school was never reopened, but became a warehouse and is now a private residence.
