An interior view of Amiens Cathedral looking down the nave towards the altar. Gothic in style, the interior contains pointed arched arcades, ribbed vault ceilings, and a blind triforium. Empty chairs are sitting in the congregation area. The pulpit, which is surmounted by a statue of an angle, projects outward into congregation.
