Amiens, Notre-Dame Cathedral - Marc Haegeman Photography

The right aisle, view towards the ambulatory, 1220-1269

The aisles are no less impressive with a height of 19 m - which is almost as high as the nave of Wells Cathedral. The elevation of the aisles gives the piers a far lighter and slender appearance than ever before.
