Description

Architectural view of the front facade of the Basilica of Santa Croce and the square where it sits. The facade was done in the neo-gothic style. Three portals with lunettes; the middle being the widest and tallest. Above the third portal is a circular stained glass window and above that is the Star of David. In the square, a fountain stands in the bottom corner of the picture frame, beyond that is a statue standing in front of the Basilica of Santa Croce.
