Santa maria deicarmini

Santa Maria dei Carmini

The church of Santa Maria dei Carmini was located in the Dorsoduro District of Venice. The church was originally called Santa Maria Assunta and dates back to the 14th century.


Built in the 1300s, Santa Maria dei Carmini was founded by a group of women who made their livelihood stitching monastic aprons for the monks in a nearby Carmelite monastery.

Carmelites believed so much in these aprons, or scapulars, that the Carmelite Constitution stated it was a serious fault to sleep without one and saying Mass sans scapular resulted in automatic excommunication.


  • The church has a view point in Assassin's Creed II.
