In the left transept stands a strange group, carved in stone. It represents the Olive trees mountain with Jesus on the Cross. It had been ordered in 1498 for the cemetery of Église Saint Thomas but was finally deposited in the Cathedral. You have to drop a one Euro coin in a slot to allow it to be lit for a few minutes.
