Originally founded in 421, San Giacomo is believed to be the oldest church in Venice, although the current building was constructed around 1071.

The 15th Century facade is crowned with a magnificent 24-hour celestial clock. During the Renaissance, the church was typically used by the merchants in the nearby market as a place to stop and pray during the workday.

At least, that's what they told their wives.
