The Church of San Giovanni Crisostomo is the last work of Mauro Coducci. He constructed it between 1479 and 1504. Unlike many of the popular churches in Venice, this is a small building. It is not of marble and Istrian stone. It is a terracotta-colored church. The interior is a simple Greek-cross plan. Inside, it is dark and very intimate.
The atmosphere is benefited by the presence of several notable art works. The Church of San Giovanni Crisostomo houses St. Jerome with Saints Christopher and Augustine (1513) by Giovanni Bellini. It is above the first altar on the right side. It is probably Bellini’s final, and arguably, one of his finest works. It shares the Church with St. Chrysostom and the Six Saints. This painting by Sebastiano del Piombo is above the High Altar. Yet, the reason many stay in budget hotels near the Church of San Crisostomo in Venice is the icon. Since 1977, the local faithful come to see this icon of the Virgin Mary.
