The nave, a hymn and the light

  • This is a  place of great contrasts between the simplicity of the plan and the virtuosity of the construction, between the sumptuous sculptures and simplicity of the architecture, between the massive pillars and height of the arches.

    It shows the victory of light over darkness.
    At the summer solstice, exactly in the axis of the nave, the sun draws right at its zenith  a path of light that leads you irresistibly into the choir.
    At the winter solstice, the caress of the cold sun gives life to the senior capitals which, gradually come out of darkness.
