English term or phrase: double towered
The double towered façade is ornamented with figures of soldiers...

My first guess was "zweitürmig", but how can a façade have two towers, since its only the façade and not the top of the structure? But maybe I just don't get the point. Any clues? Thanks!

German translation:Doppeltürmig
Explanation:
Hallo Reni,

Die deutsche Übersetzung lautet "doppeltürmig".

Beispiel: After Naumburg Cathedral, Liebfrauen Church is the most important sacral building of Thuringia. It is a three- naved basilica with a double-towered west front in the late
Romanesque / early gothic style.

Nach dem Naumburger Dom ist die Liebfrauenkirche der bedeutendste Sakralbau des Übergangsstils in Thüringen. Sie ist eine dreischiffige Basilika
mit doppeltürmiger Westfront in spätromanisch-frühgotischen Formen.

Auf der Website des Ilm-Kreises findest Du auch einige Abbildungen.

In der Gotik und Spätgotik wurden Bauten häufig mit Türmen versehen. Schöne Beispiele für eine doppeltürmige Fassade bieten die Kathedrale von Kathedrale von Burgos (1221-1567) oder der Kölner Dom.

Explanation:
I would tend to stick with the literal translation for double, how does that jive with the rest of the sentence? Also, I think towers can be incorporated into a facade, I'm sure architects in this forum can confirm this, right?
