Description

An exterior view of Chiesa di San Vincenzo's facade as viewed from the Piazza dei Signori. The facade is comprised of a double order loggia that spans three arches. Composite, engaged columns frame each arch. A relief sculpture of angles mourning the death of Christ appears at the top of the facade. This scene is then surmounted by three statues located at the points of the pediment.
