It is in Sestiere di Cannaregio, built between year 1481 and 1489 on a Project of Pietro Lombardi, as a tribute to a painting of Virgin Mary that was considered miraculous and to which the population was praying asking for a grace.
From an Architectonic point of view the Church is particularly interesting for two factors, the sumptuous façade, dressed with marbles that it is said  were remaining after the building of Saint Mark’s Church, and for a building peculiarity, the church gas a single central nave, the altar in on an high pedestal and it is preceded by a massive and long staircase, colours and architecture of this place are appreciate both by the Art amateur and the tourist, a promenade out of the common touristic itinerary.
