Documents attest to a church of this name dating to the 10th century. The present building dates to reconstructions beginning in the 18th century.
The facade (1733-1741), designed by Domenico Rossi, was built with the patronage of the patrician Donà family. That family once occupied the adjacent Palazzo Giovanelli. The church now belongs to the parish of San Marcuola.
