Basilique St Nazaire & St Celse, Carcassonne: 22 reviews and 82 photos
Both transept terminate in Rose windows. In addition the transepts are widened by a row of columns into two aisles, made even wider by opening the east side chapels by having no entrance closures. The North transept is early 14C and antedates the South Rose. It is dedicated to the Virgin seated at its center with her child on her lap, signifying her as Queen of Heaven. The chapel nearest the choir is the Lady Chapel and has a 14C stained glass window of the Tree of Jesse. It is modeled on the figure in Sainte Chapelle in Paris.
