Church of S.Maria Assunta

It was built in the 12th century, the primitive construction of the church belonged to the order of the Crociferi, but in 1657 the Jesuits purchased it together with the nearby monastery and rebuilt it. The majestic façade was erected thanks to a donation from the Manin family and was designed by Fattoretto with non-traditional baroque forms and an abundant plastic decoration. Twenty paintings by “Jacopo Palma il giovane” are housed in the sacristy. The church also preserves Titian‘sMartyrdom of San Lorenzo’.
