San Giacomo di Rialto
San Giacomo di Rialto is a church in the sestiere of San Polo, Venice, northern Italy. The addition of Rialto to the name distinguishes this church from its namesake San Giacomo dall'Orio found on the other shore of the Grand Canal in the sestiere of Santa Croce. It has a large 15th century clock above the entrance, a useful item in the Venetian business district. The Gothic portico is one of the few surviving examples in Venice. It has a Latin cross plan with a central dome. Source: Wikipedia
