The narthex: a prelude to a moving beauty

  • The wonder seizes you when you discover the great central tympanum, one of the most masterful works of Romanesque sculpture.

    Christ, full of majesty and serenity, welcomes you with arms wide open, surrounded by his apostles. Right there under your eyes you can see how the breath of the Spirit touches the clothes and invites the apostles to spread the gospel to everyone.
