The Church of Santo Stephano has an interesting history. It was deconsecrated not once but 6 times as the result of violence within its walls. Constructed during the 14th century, it underwent radical alterations during the 15th century. Today, it is an admirable example of Renaissance Gothic. The portal by Bartolomeo Bon is carved with ropework, vegetative growth and vines. On top is the usual Gothic arch as well as side pinnacles.
Beyond the patterned red and white brick work is the beauty of the art work. The church contains later works by Tintoretto. They include the Agony in the Garden, the Washing of the Disciples Feet and the Last Supper. You may also visit the tomb of Doge Francesco Morosini. He was responsible for blowing up the Parthenon in Athens.
