|Basilica di Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari|
One of Venice's primary churches.
The Basilica di Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari, or simply the Frari, is a church located within Venice. The Assassin Ezio Auditore visited the Frari during the 15th century, where he learned the Climb Leap skill from local thief Rosa.
One of the greatest churches in the city, it had the status of a minor basilica. It stood on the Campo dei Frari at the heart of the San Polo district. The imposing edifice was built of brick, and was one of the city's three notable churches built in the Italian Gothic style. As with many Venetian churches, the exterior was rather plain. The interior contained the only rood screen still in place in Venice. The building was completed, after almost a century of construction, in 1338.
- A Templar lair was located within the Basilica.
- According to the novelization of Assassin's Creed: Revelations, Ezio Auditore and Sofia Sartor were married in the Basilica in 1512.
