The district of San Polo is home to the famous Rialto Bridge and Venice’s oldest church, San Giacomo di Rialto, which dates from the 5th Century. It also contains Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari, one of the largest churches in Venice.

Merchants flock to San Polo to sell their wares, small wonder the palazzo of Venice’s most powerful 15th Century merchant, Emilio Barbarigo, is located here.
