Dedicated to S. Maria del Carmelo, the church was founded with the adjacent convent at the end of the 13th-century. Of its original gothic structure, it has retained the basilican layout of the structure. It was reconstructed and decorated by Sebastiano da Lugano in the early decades of the 1500s. Beside the church stands the Scuola Grande dei Carmini in which it is possible to admire a cycle of frescoes by Tiepolo holding substantial value.
