The crypt was in use when the church was consecrated in 1077. Its short thick pillars and vaulting support the built-up choir that was added in 1230. The crypt columns have interesting figurative capitals, but other fine ones are exhibited here without details about their previous location or ages. The frescos are 15C additions making the ensemble more attractive. They are on the walls or on the spandrels.
