One of the earliest examples of Renaissance architecture in Venice, this church was built for the residents of a nearby hospice by the doge buried inside, Cristoforo Moro.

Cristoforo presided over Venice's war with the Turks, until his death in 1471. He had one son, Dante Moro, who he disowned after Dante lost his position as Captain of the Venetian City Guard in 1468.
