Tucked away in one of the corner of San Marco, it is one of the smallest you will find but very well put up.
Ricostruita nella sua forma attuale nel 1632, a quanto risulta da Moisé Venier, nasce intorno allottavo secolo come chiesa di San Vittore. Molto ricca di decorazioni, tra cui i busti della famiglia Fini, è barocca anche all'interno, in cui si trovano La Lavanda dei Piedi del Tintoretto, e l'altare, con Mosé che riceve le tavole della legge. Curiosità: al centro, si trova la lapide, traslata da San Geminiano, di Giovanni Law, banchiere inglese autore di bancarotte in gesta di Francia.
