Chiesa di San Rocco information
Originally built by Bartolomeo Bon in 1489–1508, this church got a baroque facelift in 1765–71 with a grand portal flanked by Giovanni Marchiori statues. Bon’s rose window was moved to the side of the church, near Bon’s original side door. Inside the church's Sala dell’Albergo are a couple of comparatively quiet Tintorettos, including San Rocco Healing the Animals .
