View Point

San Giovanni e Paolo was a church in Venice. In the late 15th century it was connected to the Scuola Grande di San Marco.

HistoryEdit

One of the largest churches in Venice, Santi Giovanni e Paolo was built after Doge Jacopo Tiepolo had a dream about white birds flying over the site. He donated the land on which the church was built in 1246 to the Dominicans. The current Italian Gothic church was completed in 1430.

The church claims to contain the foot of Saint Catherine of Siena. Born in Siena in 1347, as the last of 25 children, Catherine became an important ambassador for the Pope.
