This is Flamboyant verticality at its acme (although only 99 feet high). The fine limestone used at Auxerre allowed forthe elimination of capitals on the vertical columns so that they could run unimpeded into the vaulting. (The buttresses are internal). This is accompanied by a triforium that is delicate tracery. The clerestory windows copy those of Chartres: two lancets and a large oculus above.
