San Giacomo di Rialto is a church in the sestiere of San Polo, Venice, northern Italy. It is believed to be the oldest church in the city, supposedly consecrated in the year 421. It survived a fire in the Rialto in the early 16th century. It is notable for the large 15th century clock above the entrance, a useful item in the Venetian business district.
