Over the arcades of the nave, past the first two bays, the aisles are covered by tall galleries which run for three bays. At this point, the next bay starts with a transvers arch. Below it is a nave crossing gallery with a fine balustrade that joins the lateral galleries. On its West side it bears a pulpit over the nave. A crossing gallery and stairs cover the nave in the first two bays, the total allowing for a larger congregation in a small church. The grand crossing gallery is the location of the transept. Here lateral chapels extend from the aisle. On the north is a fine worship chapel and the the open part on the south is a church bookstore selling tourist items.
