Yet another beautiful church in Venice, San Bárnaba is Neoclassical in style. It was first built in the 9th century, but was destroyed in a fire in 1105 and subsequently rebuilt. In the 18th century, the architect Lorenzo Boschetti completely renovated the church and gave it its current Neoclassical façade, made from Istrian stone. La Chiesa di San Bárnaba overlooks a homonymous campo in Dorsoduro. Nowadays, the area immediately surrounding the church and Campo San Bárnaba contains numerous trendy shops and restaurants.

Address: Campo San Bárnaba - DORSODURO 2771
