  • The church of San Giuseppe di Castello was founded in 1512, as documented by a decree issued by the Venetian Senate, and entrusted to the Augustinian nuns.

    The building, whose architect remains unknown, stands sideways along the fondamenta of a canal, with a façade decorated with double pilasters, interrupted in a later era by large semi-circular windows. The gabled façade has only one significant architectural feature, the elaborate tympanum above the portal, with a bas-relief at the centre depicting the Adoration of the Magi, by Giulio dal Moro.

    The interior features a single nave. Suspended on the wall above the main entrance is the “barco”, a choir once connected with the convent next door. On the altar stands the “Adoration of the Shepherds”, an altarpiece painted in 1582 by Paolo Veronese in 1582, commissioned by doge Marino Grimani with the clear intent to commemorate the client’s father, the Procuratore di San Marco Girolamo Grimani, who died in 1570 and is portrayed in the painting as Saint Mark.
