Description

View of the narthex as seen from the choir of Notre Dame Basilica Bonsecours near Rouen. Quadripartite vaults line the ceiling of the nave and are painted with stars. Towards the west entrance of the basilica, an ornate organ sits above the main portal entry obscuring the view of the rose window.
