On the other side of the river, the church faces the contemporary Bonifantin Museum, where the city’s most important art collections, many Dutch and Italian works, and a collection of medieval arts, including wood carvings from the 13th and 16th centuries, are distinguished by its exterior appearance, which includes a conical tower that looks like a space rocket.
