Church of St Stefano
This church was founded by the Desert Fathers in the 1200s. It can be found at the end of the square after which it is named.
It was completely rebuilt in the 14 century and decorated in the Gothic Venetian style. The splendid marble decorated door is by Bartolomeo Bon (1442).
The sacristy is the home of important Renaissance art works; three large paintings by Tintoretto, The Last Supper, the Washing of the Feet and the Sermon in the Garden.
There is a Crucifixion by Paolo Veneziano, a polyptych by Bartolomeo Vivarini and Palma il Vecchio’s Holy Family.
The funeral stone of Senator Giovanni Falier (1808) by Antonio Canova can be found in a side chapel.
