Church of San Nicolò degli Albari – The story of the three prostitutes

0
Looking at the façade of the church of San Nicolò degli Albari, a high relief of St Nicholas can be seen above the portal. Next to him a putto holds the Bible and three spheres on his head, symbolising an episode in the saint's life: he wanted to save three sisters from prostitution, so he gave their family three purses full of gold, thus guaranteeing the women an honourable life.
