St. John Nepomuk church, Munich

The fašade of this unique private church, constructed between the adjoining houses is based around a triple portal: in the lower stage there is the door surround and above it the frame of the large window; finally, the whole fašade can be viewed as a portal with huge side pilasters supporting the curving gable that soars above the adjoining houses.
