This church was founded in the 9th century, but with a rather dangerous tendency to slump. The structure had to be completely overhauled several times, most recently in the 20th century – hence the rather bland but reassuringly solid neoclassical facade. Inside is Tintoretto’s recently restored Baptism of Christ, which once was part of the altarpiece.
