Church of the Friars Minor

Highly recommended
The huge late-Gothic church of Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari and its majestic facade are flanked by a 70m-high bell tower and home to a host of masterpieces. Among which the monument to Canova, a sort of Neoclassical pyramid opposite Titian's mausoleum, a stunning 15C side chapel, complete with 124 carved stalls, and a remarkable Madonna di Ca'Pesaro, by Titian, who also signed The Assumption (1516) in the main chapel.
