Grand Canal and San Simeone Piccolo.

San Simeone Piccolo is a church in the sestiere of Santa Croce in Venice, northern Italy. From across the Grand Canal it faces the railroad terminal serving as entrypoint for most visitors to the city. Built in 171838 by Giovanni Antonio Scalfarotto, the church shows the emerging eclecticism of Neoclassical architecture. This was one of the last churches built in Venice, in one of its poorer sestieri. The pediment of the entrance has a marble relief depicting "The Martyrdom of the Saints" by Francesco Penso, known as "il Cabianca". Saint Simon was apparently the martyred cousin of Christ, martyred as a Jew by the Romans.
