The dome and the high altar are the most important but not the only attractions that the basilica has to offer.
Another interesting art work you should admire is the statue of Abbé Haffreingue, who wanted to build a new church in 1827. He is sculptured on his kneels while offering the Notre-Dame basilica to the Lady.
The second photo shows a retable of the Sacred Heart in new-baroque style.
You can also see some rests of frescoes in the small apses (see the third image).
Have a look at this Travelogue for more pictures of the interior of the basilica.
