The interior of Saint-Etienne-du-Mont is one of the strangest you could ever imagine.
The two lateral aisles are as high as the central nave and form an ambulatory around the altar.
However, your attention will certainly be caught by the wonderful ambo (or pulpit) in the middle of the nave. This marble lacework may have been built by Philippe Delorme around 1530-35. Have a look at the vaults above you (fifth picture).
