    In the apse behind the altar in a chapel stands a fine sculpture from about 1500 of a full size set of figures of the Deposition. In the north transept is an ancient well inserted during the 15 C construction which has a wrought iron top added in 1875. In the same site a above on the wall is a 16C organ with a finely wood carved casing decorated with pagan gods at the center and laterally Apostles.

    The Jube 4 more images

    by hquittner Updated Apr 30, 2010

    The Jube is topped by a tall Cross and ends in an elaborate choir screen but it only has a single north entrance. The altar has a modest baldachin which is surrounded by Gothic and Renaissance sides covered with female grotesques on the choir sides. The East end of the chevet is covered by a set of 19C stained glass windows of a Calvary with Deposition sets on each lateral side.

    The interior of this Basilica is as largeand elaborate as a cathedral with a long nave, aisles, ambulatory, a five chapel east end, a deep choir ending with a Jube across the width at its west end and wide transepts on both the north and south before the nave. There is a large Rose window at the west end.
