Eleanor Breaks A Rule At Santa Maria Gloriosa Dei Frari

Almost all the churches I've visited do not allow you to take pictures inside the building - even if you are not using a flash, and they are pretty serious about it.  But Tuesday morning, I broke that rule at Santa Maria Gloriosa Dei Frari: as you can see the outside of the church is plain - the inside is unbelievably beautiful. I took these pictures "under cover"  - I  was one of the first people in the church that day and photo patrol wasn't out yet.  By the way the Frari in the title refers toy he Franciscan order of priests who built the church, not the car.

  1. We studied Titian's "Assumption" in my Baroque class. I'd love to see it. Glad you were a rule breaker - at least for a day!
