Many houses in the Fuggerei are covered with ivy, which makes them even more beautiful and characteristic.
Moreover, almost every house in the Fuggerei has a small window with a statue of the Virgin, a saint or an angel. Devotion was, in fact, one of the conditions to live there.
However, many others buildings in Augsburg have religious statues on their fašades.
