The Basilica di Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari, normally just called the Frari, is a congregation in Venice, northern Italy. One of the best holy places in the city, it has the status of a minor basilica. It remains on the Campo dei Frari at the core of the San Polo area. The congregation is committed to the Assumption .
The Franciscans were allowed land to fabricate a congregation in 1250, yet the building was not finished until 1338. Work very quickly started on its significantly bigger substitution, the present church, which assumed control over a century to construct. The campanile, the second tallest in the city after that of San Marco, was finished in 1396.
