Sant'Alvise is a church in the sestiere of Cannaregio in Venice, northern Italy. According to tradition, it was built by Antonia Venier in 1338 and dedicated to St. Louis of Toulouse, and located next to an adjacent convent.The brick exterior and facade do not reflect the rich interior.InteriorIt has a single nave, the current appearance dating from the 17th century restoration. On the interior facade above the entrance porch you can see a barco. A special piece on the counter-facade. Protected by wrought iron gates, behind which nuns could attend the religious services.The ceiling was entirely frescoed by Pietro Antonio Torri and Pietro Ricchi in the same period.To the right of the entrance are two canvases by Pietro della Vecchia depicting Theft of the body of St. Mark and The Saracens refuse to inspect the basket with the body of St. Mark, made as cartoons for mosaic decoration of St. Mark's Basilica. These are followed by a St. Louis consecrated bishop of Toulouse (Louis of Toulouse) attributed to Pietro Damini. Further along the right wall and in the presbytery are three large works by Giambattista Tiepolo, in order: Christ Reaching the Calvary, the Coronation of Thorns, and the Flagellation.

Even the presence of a few tourists makes it a place worth a visit.
