The Ognissanti Church

In this chapter we discuss one of the buildings that made the history of Venezia and of the Dorsoduro District, the Ognissanti Church.

The Ognissanti Church

The Ognissanti Church, located in the Dorsoduro District, dates back to the 16th century with the aim of replacing the former church that stood beside the monastery of the Cistercian nuns, who moved here after the forced abandonment from the Torcello Island, at that time infested with malaria.

The nuns, in 1472, immediately founded a hospice, a convent and the church dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary and Saints consecrated in 1586.
