San Giovanni Grisostomo is a small church in the sestiere or neighborhood of Cannaregio, Venice.The church was founded in 1080, destroyed by fire in 1475, then rebuilt starting in 1497 by Mauro Codussi and his son, Domenico. Construction was completed in 1525. The bell tower dates from the late 16th century. The interior is based on a Greek cross design.Behind the façade are hung two canvasses, formerly organ doors, by Giovanni Mansueti depicting Saints Onuphrius, Agatha, Andrew and John Chrysostom. Onuphrius was the co-titular patron saint who was revered by the confraternity of the Tentori . In 1516, a relic of the saint, his finger, was donated to this church.The chapel on the right has the painting Saints Christopher, Jerome and Louis of Toulouse by Giovanni Bellini. On the left rear, the chapel of the Rosary or Madonna della Grazie has an altarpiece of Saints John Chrysostom, John the Baptist, John the Evangelist, Theodore, Mary Magdalen, Lucy and Catherine by Sebastiano del Piombo, commissioned by Caterina Contarini. On the wall of the apse are a series of canvases on the life of Saint John Chrysostom and Christ. On the high altar is a relief of the Deposition from the Cross. To the left is the chapel built for Giacomo Bernabò, with sculptural design by Codussi. The marble altarpiece of the Coronation of the Virgin was completed by Tullio Lombardo.

  • This church is not far from the Ponte del Rialto. The interior is sober which is exceptional in Venice. There is a very nice statue of Mary.

  • A very nice church, on the New Road, so very easy to find. Open, with free entry, you can join to admire its architecture, or the works consevate. It is also a Marian shrine, and therefore ideal for stopping for a meditation or a prayer. If you're in the area come in and check it out.

  • Amazing! This church is very beautiful, like many others small churches in Venice. I haven't taken photos inside there because there is an advice on the entrance which mentions that is prohibited to take photos. The visitation worth it!
  • Small, but very nice church.
