The Chiesa di San Bartolomeo Apostolo or San Bortolo, located in homonymous quarter, was founded by Fra' Paglia in 1255. It was then given to the Padri Umiliati, famous wool weaver, in 1260. The Monaci Olivetani got the possess of the church in 1474 thanks to a breve by Pope Sisto IV. They enlarged the monastery and ran the church until 1810, when Napoleon abolished religious orders. The monastery was used as a poor people's home from 1844 on.
