The interior of the church can only be seen when there are special cultural events held in it, but it was open regularly when we took these pictures although the light was dim. The interior is elaborate and shows off Le Mercier's first dome. Richelieu's tomb at the inner end of the chancel is a masterpiece of sculpture (by Girardon, 1678, to drawings by LeBrun).
