Overview

According to tradition, toward the middle of the 13th century, the son of the Doge Pietro, Marco Ziani, donated a vineyard to the Friars and the church was built here by Jacopo Sansovino 300 years later. The façade, commissioned by the patriarch of Aquileia, was later restored by Palladio. It seems that long before, on the same site, there was the church of San Marco, to commemorate the place where San Marco was met by an angel on his way back from Aquileia. The sober interior houses paintings by Veronesi and Bellini.
