The Basilica di Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari is one of the largest and most important Gothic churches in Venice. This church, which is dedicated to Mary’s acension to heaven, was built because the former church of the Fransiscan monks was declared too small to accomodate its many visiting worshipers. The current Basilica di Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari may look plain from the outside, but the interior of the church is the complete opposite. The church is home to numerous graves of past dukes, a monument for Tizian, and a niche grave for Jacopo Marcello.
