The height of the church is achieved in the arcades of the nave which go more than half way to the ogival vaulting. It is 42.5 m and i s the highest in France (excluding the 48 m of Beauvais). On the floor is a labyrinth (like at Chartres; See Our Customs Tip here). The transept Rose windows were added last in the 14C. The organ loft and organ in the west end are from the mid-15C.
