The Basilica of Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari, commonly called "i Frari", is the largest of the churches in Venice and received in 1926 by papa Pio XI the title of minor basilica. It is located on the Campo dei Frari, in the San Polo district, and is dedicated to the Assumption of Mary.
The plan is a Latin cross, and the style is composed of Venetian Gothic brick and Istrian stone. It has three naves with ogival arches resting on six columns on each side, connected to each other by chains coated by wooden crates.
It measures 102 meters in length, 48 meters in the transept and is 28 meters high. Today it is possible to admire 17 monumental altars and many works of art, including two paintings by Titian. Also the tombs of several personalities linked to Venice, including Claudio Monteverdi and Titian, are hosted here.
