It was founded in the early 8th century, allegedly by St. Magnus of Oderzo; in the following century, under doge Pietro III Candiano, it was rebuilt to house the alleged relics of St. John the Baptist, to whom it is entitled, and again in 1178. Pietro Barbo, future Pope Paul II, and Antonio Vivaldi were baptised in the church.
The current appearance dates from the last renovation , which kept the basilica plan but added a brickwork façade in local late-Gothic style, and a façade divided into three sections.
