Description

An interior view of the Basilica of Saint Denis, looking down the nave towards the main altar. Chairs line both sides of the aisle. Crystal chandeliers with candles hang from the ceiling. The Gothic elements of the Basilica, such as the pointed arched arcades of the side-aisles, the ribbed vaulted ceiling, the clerestory, and the stained glass windows of the apse are visible.
