I thought this might be a gothic font, but my searches haven't turned anything up.

It appears to be a hand-drawn uncial font (derived from medieval manuscript hand lettering).

A search on myfonts.com using "uncial" as a descriptive turned up dozens of fonts, but no exact match. However, several came closer than others.

The lower case of Bergling

would work nicely as a quality substitute. http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/alterlittera/initials-bergling-a/

To make a matching _u_ in Bergling, simply mirror and flip the _n_. I suspect the stone lettering is based on Bergling's book _Art Alphabets and Lettering_, the same source as used for the Bergling Initials font.

Just curious, where is the building?
