Church of Saint Joseph: Overall view of facade and central dome
Architecture Library, Hesburgh Libraries
Stone walls alternate with whitewashed (oyster shell stucco) areas with openings that divide the facade into two levels. The lower level is lined with windows topped by semicircular pediments, and the upper level has balconies and garlands. Above the entrance door is a niche with St. Joseph carved in stone by Cosme Velazquez. The main dome and the cupolas of the twin towers are covered by blue tiles.
