Churches, Venice: 81 reviews and 141 photos
The church of San Martino have been founded in 650 but more reliable sources say it was at 1026. The current look is after rebuilding in 1546, to a design by Sansovino. The facade was changed again in 1897, by the architect Rupelo, who retained Sansovino's doorway. The interior is Greek cross plan with eight chapels at the corners.
There is lion's mouth on the front facade, it served for posting anonymous accusations of citizens' sinfullness.
