The imposing church of San Pietro, with its characteristic slightly leaning bell tower (built by Codussi in 1482), was the Cathedral of Venice from its origins in eighth century. In 1807, the bishop's see of Venice moved cathedral to Saint Mark.
The church is situated on the island of San Pietro, known also as island of Castelletto, which lies opposite to the Darsena.
