Chiesa Cattolica Parrocchiale Di S. Raffaele Arcangelo

The Chiesa dell'Angelo San Raffaele (English: "Church of St. Raphael Angel") is a church in Venice, northern Italy, located in the sestiere Dorsoduro. According to tradition, this church was one of the eight churches founded in Venice by St. Magnus of Oderzo. The church also suffered fires in 889, 1106 and 1149, each time being rebuilt. At the beginning of the 17th century the edifice was in poor condition, and was therefore demolished and rebuilt. Works were finished in 1743-1749.
