San Barnaba, Venice
Façade and bell-tower of San Barnaba
A church at the site was built in the ninth century, but destroyed by fire in 1105. Rebuilt in 1350, it was reconstructed in its present form in 1776 under the patronage of Marcantonio Grimani using designs of Lorenzo Boschetti. The 11th-century campanile, detached from the main body of the church, has a pine-cone shaped spire from the 1300s. To the left of the church was the entrance to the Casin dei Nobili (Casino of the Aristocracy), which was an active gaming house in the 18th century. The church is now deconsecrated and used for exhibitions.
