History of the Church of San Felice of Venice
Despite its medieval origins, the church today shows a Greek cross plan and an architectural linearity typical of the early sixteenth century projects of Mauro Codussi.
Although the interior has been plundered of precious altars, it still boasts paintings of considerable value, such as the Armed Saint Demetrius, a youthful work by Jacopo Tintoretto.
A plaque above the door of the sacristy commemorates the baptism of Charles Rezzonico (29 March 1693) who later became pope under the name of Clement XIII.
