Amiens Cathedral Interiors

The interior of Amiens cathedral is not so elaborately decorated like its exteriors, yet it has a simple charm of its own. The interior length is 438 feet (133.5 metres), the soaring nave reaches an elevation of 139 feet (42.3 metres) at the apex of the vault, and it is 48 feet (14.6 metres) wide. One can easily feel negligible in this huge interiors! Following are some pictures from interiors; hope you will like the virtual tour.

Beautiful! How I miss not seeing the interiors! I thought the refurbishing is a 20 years project, have they finished?
