Landscape view of Rome, view of the western side of the Church of San Maria Maggiore: two cupolas are seen at each end and a small bell-tower beyond. The bare ground of the piazza is visible in the foreground, leading up to the church with an obelisk (with a cross on top) in front. On either side are trees (not in leaf) and bushes. Some of the windows of the church appear boarded up.
