Scuola Grande di San Giovanni Evangelista
Built at the end of the 14th Century, Scuola Grande di San Giovanni Evangelista is instantly eye-catching because of the large front entrance, which opens into a small courtyard. The construction is a mix of styles from the 14th to the late 15th Century. Renovated in the 17th Century, the hall of San Giovanni was built at that time, as was the monumental, splendid staircase and the Oratory of the Cross, which is next door. Nowadays, this is mostly used as a concert hall and can only be visited with a guide on selected days of the week.
