San Polo District - Sestiere San Polo, Venice: 15 reviews and 46 photos
San Giacometto, also known as Giacomo di Rialto, is perhaps the oldest church in Venice, whose foundations is probably related to the market that started at the Rialto in 1097. What shows this relation is the 12th century inscription on the exterior of the apse, that bade the merchants to be honest and trustworthy.
Of its origins the church preserves the Gothic portico with capitals, the only surviving one of its kind in Venice, and its quadriangular plan of the interiors.
Address: Campo San Giacomo di Rialto, 1
