The small church of San Giacomo, with its huge clock-face on its façade, was the place of worship for merchants who would pray for honest but profitable business. Close by, is the even smaller yet astonishing church of San Giovanni Elemosinario (John the Almsgiver), where an outstandingly fine work of art by Titian is preserved and where, on the altar of the ancient Guild of the Poulterers, a painting shows them together with their chickens worshiping the Virgin Mary.
