Description

A detailed, interior view of the Chartres Cathedral's nave. Towards the facing right of the image is a large column that obstructs the view. There is a wooden, curved staircase in the lower facing left corner. Kneelers fill the congregational space. The side aisle, triforium, and clerestory are visible.
