9. The Byzantine Gallery

The Byzantine Gallery, accessible through a richly decorated Romanesque entrance, covers an area of 28 m x 7.60m, respectively 9.20 m.
One can admire six magnificent trefoiled windows facing the valley side and four additional ones on the west side. The Romanesque capitals are of fine sculptured work. As most of them had been heavily damaged or were even lost, they have been replaced in the meantime by more neutral forms. Originally, there were 88 small columns and
as many capitals.
