Inside the church, you will see the same mixture and superposition of styles as outside. the original 13th-century Gothic structure has flaming decorations. Observe the richness of the 16th-century flaming Gothic frieze (second picture of this tip) over the choir. The ambulatory and the rose window are other attractions of Saint-Pierre.
