Frari's Basilica map
The church is shaped in the form of a Latin cross with three naves and ogival ar- ches resting upon six pillars on either side connected by wooden tie- beams.
The pillars support a cross vault ceiling with ogival arches underlined by ner- vures shaped in brick.
The central nave is much higher than the aisles.
The transept at end of the church is closed off by seven chapels of polygonal design in the apses.
Each chapel is dedicated to a different saint and some of them were granted to brotherhoods and noble Venetian families, like Bernardo and Corner, thus allowed to use and ornate them at their own expenses.
Those who enter the Basilica from the front door are going to face the majestic and imposing sight of the interior as a whole before looking at the individual masterpieces.
