Isola San Pietro di Castello

Isola San Pietro di Castello, formerly Olivolo, is an island in the Venetian Lagoon, northern Italy, forming part of the Castello sestiere. It is linked to the main islands of Venezia by two bridges.

The Basilica, commonly called San Pietro di Castello, is a Roman Catholic minor basilica of the Patriarch of Venice located in the Castello sestiere of the Italian city of Venezia. The present building dates from the 16th century, but a church has stood on the site since at least the 7th century. From 1451 to 1807, it was the city’s cathedral church, though hardly playing the usual dominant role of a cathedral, as it was overshadowed by the “state church” of San Marco and inconveniently located. During its history, the church has undergone a number of alterations and additions by some of the most prominent architects. Andrea Palladio received his first commission in the city of Venice from the Patriarch Vincenzo Diedo to rebuild the facade and interior, but Diedo’s death delayed the project.

After St Mark’s Basilica became Venezia’s official cathedral (it had previously been the private church of the Doge), San Pietro fell into a state of disrepair. It was firebombed during the First World War and only through the efforts of conservation organisations has it been restored to its former state. Its ongoing conservation is now managed through its membership of the Chorus Association of Venetian churches. Wikipedia
