Description

An interior view of the crypt located in the St. Gereon's Basilica. Seen in the image are a series of short columns, the arches of which create a ribbed vault. In the foreground, two columns contain an engraved zig-zag pattern. The ceiling is painted with a floral design. There is also a small figural scene also painted on the ceiling. Towards the very back is a small altar.
