district is named after the monastery and the church that no longer exist. The area was full of convents and populated by a diverse group of people who practised various activities. The San Polo district takes its name from the church dedicated to the Apostle Paul. It was the centre of economy and trade in the city and its market is still there. According to tradition, it was one of the first places inhabited by Venetians. It became the centre of business and trade in 1097, as it was the highest point above sea level. Later, due to its functional features, other commercial activities came to the area: stores dealing in gold, spices and textiles, financial institutions like banks and public administration companies like maritime insurance companies and the stock exchange.
