Description

An exterior view of the north transept facade of the Church of St. Ouen. Built in the Gothic style, the facade contains a rose window above a balustrade. The door is framed by a pointed arch with a repeated tracery-like design. Mullioned lancet windows surmount the portal. The gable includes tabernacles of sculptures, possibly saints. The lantern-style tower is visible and aligns with the peak of the gable.
