CHURCH OF SAN POLO - Sestiere of San Polo, IX sec. -

Saint Polo Chuch , Venice Almost nothings remains of the ancient foundation of S. Polo Church: archipointed door with two angels, the big Gothic finial by Bon's work-shop and the bell tower that dates back to 1362.
Interior cearly shows the restoration made in 1804 by architect Davide Rossi who adapted the previous Gothic church to his neoclassical changes.
This church is known for many works are kept inside, expecially sixteenth century Venetian paintings as L'ultima cena (Last Dinner) by Tintoretto on the back wall and L'Assunta e i santi, probably realized by the artist in collaboration with his work-shop. Lo sposalizio della Vergine (Virgin's wedding) by P. Veronese and La conversione di San Paolo by Jacopo Palma il Giovane.
Maybe the real masterpiece kept in this chuch is 14 stazioni della Via Crucis realized by Tiepolo.
