Black-and-white image of a church, viewed frontally, with two smaller, partially visible buildings on either side. The church appears to be lining a canal, and in the foreground there is a wooden walkway, perhaps a dock, leading to the entrance. The church has a large, arched doorway, and the roof is decorated with several statues of figures holding crosses. There is a dome on the back of the roof, topped with one of these figures.
