Description

An exterior view of Amiens Cathedral's main facade looking towards the north. Gothic in style, the facade includes a tri-portal entry complete with pointed archivolts, mullioned windows, a rose window, and two bell towers. Sculptures of saints are placed in niches, which are located below the rose window. A man stands outside of the cathedral on the lowest step and looks towards the entrance. People walk about on the facing right side of the image.
