Parts of this chapel-like gallery were constructed with twelfth-century limestone blocks from the church of Notre-Dame-du-Bourg at Langon, near Bordeaux. Seven capitals from the crossing and choir of Langon are installed in the gallery, all of them decorated with carved human heads or figures in high relief. The gallery is entered through a pair of monumental twelfth-century doors from the region of the Pyrenees. Also exhibited here are twelfth-century sculptures from Burgundy in wood and limestone.
