Chiesa di San Tomà

San Tomà (San Toma) is a former church located in the sestiere of San Polo in Venice, Italy. It stands near the Scoletta dei Calegheri. The church is named after San Tommaso Apostolo (Saint Thomas the Apostle). A church on the site dates back to the tenth century, the present orientation was set in 1395, and the exterior and much of the interior decorations are due to reconstructions in the 16th and 17th centuries. For example, The Baroque architecture layout we see today was completed in 1652 by Giuseppe Sardi, using a design originally by Baldassare Longhena. The church was reinforced and the facade decorated with two statues in 1742 by Francesco Bognolo.
