Although officially called Santa Maria del Giglio (i.e., of the Lily), this 17th century church is commonly known as Santa Maria Zobenigo. The latter name comes from the Zobenigo (also Jubanico) family who founded the original church in the 9th century. It was rebuilt in 1681 and given one of the most beautiful Baroque fašades in all of Venice. The fine sculptures on the fašade contain reliefs of a few cities that were once part of the Republic of Venice, while the interior boasts a few paintings by important artists such as Tintoretto. This church is located in a campo named after itself, Campo Santa Maria Zobenigo.

Address: Campo Santa Maria Zobenigo, San Marco
