Search Church of San Lio:

"San Lio is a church located on the campo of the same name in the sestiere of Castello.

Built in the 9th century by the patrician family of the Badoer it was first named St Catherine of Alexandria. In 1054, it was rededicated to St Leone (san Lio in venetian dialect) in honor of pope Leo IX, who had favored the cause of Venice in a 1043 dispute between the Doge Contarini of Venice, the Patriarch of Aquileia over who had supremacy over the region of Grado.

The presytery was rebuilt in the 15th century, and the church underwent a major reconstruction and design in 1783. The latest reconstruction led to a single nave; the bell-tower was taken down."
