History

The Frari was established by Franciscan friars after they were granted this land by Doge Jacopo Tiepolo. The first church to be built in the 13th century was much smaller than the current one, which was completed in the 15th century. Aside from its size, the Frari has a rather plain brick façade. The interior boasts Titian's Assumption over the main altar. The painting is more colorful compared to the other artwork hanging in the church, but its size is the most impressive factor.
