Description

A view of the south transept portal of the Rouen Cathedral. An archivolt of saints frames the entrance. An ornate gable then surmounts the archivolt; its pinnacle cresting the space of the rose window. On either side of the main bay, a tower appears. The tower consists of an elongated pair of lancet windows without glass separated by a mullion. The tower sits above two lancet stained glass windows, also separated by a mullion. A commercial building abuts the facade toward the right of the picture frame.
