It has been said that the sculptures adorning this doorway, among which we can find an image of the Virgin Mary with Jesus in her arms, create the impression of entering a place of worship rather than of business. A narrow, stone column divides the doorway into two and each door is covered with a beautifully-decorated metallic plate dating back to 1532.
