This Canal is behind the San Cassiano. San Cassiano is a 14th-century Roman Catholic church located in the San Polo sestiere of the Italian city of Venice. The church houses three paintings by the Italian artist Tintoretto, including The Crucifixion of Christ painted in 1568 which the art critic John Ruskin described as, “the finest [example of a Crucifixion painting] in Europe”. However, the most famous painting associated with the church is paradoxically one which is no longer there.
