THIS IS A CORRECTED THAT FIXED COLUMN DISTORTION> The church has a richly decorated façade, with six smooth columns supporting an entablature, with animals, grotesque figures and vegetables, and has a large rose window. The main portal has a pair of Corinthian columns and the coats of arms of Philip III of Spain, Mary of Enghien and Walter VI of Brienne, while on the side portals are those of the Celestines. Several atlantes would represent the Turk prisoners made by the Christian League at the Battle of Lepanto (1571).[1] The animals under the balaustrade would symbolize the Christian powers which participated in the battle: the dragon was the symbol of the Boncompagni, family of Pope Gregory XVI; the griffon the Republic of Genoa, Hercules the Grand Duke of Tuscany and so on


Here I tried to get a slice of the façade that showed as much variation as I could. D810 with 24120 f-4G ED VR lens at 44mm, f-6.3, Auto ISO 124, 1-200 VR on, manual mode, hand held. Processed in Capture NX-D and PSCS6 Extended using Picture Postcard workflow. Border added with On 1 Effects
